I am a native of California, but the highways of life have now led me to my wife's home country of Japan. Additionally, I have been fortunate to live and work in South Korea and the Dominican Republic. Currently I am an English teacher in the public school system, but much of my life I have spent doing religiously oriented work, including choral singing. I love nature, and am fascinated by history and scientific discovery. I am the proud father of three growing children.
