I currently work in a sub field of cat herding. Also known as teaching. More specifically, teaching English to middle and high school students on a two-year fellowship in Japan. In a former life, I was an International Relations and Japanese undergrad at CU-Boulder, Washington DC slave laborer, and able to find a decent burrito. My long standing interests are Japanese foreign policy, nationalism, and colonialism. My recent interests surround the rhetoric and policies of Japanese recovery. Fun fact: I am probably the only dart tournament playing foreigner in the Okayama area.
