About Me
Hi! I trained as a classical violinist but ultimately came to Japan as an English teacher. I still play in a piano trio, teach and write about the violin. I have always loved reading and my goal is to read Japanese fluently. In the past I have written many articles and academic papers and would like to try other genres. Now I am 46 I am considering my goals in life. The disaster in Japan has affected me very much in this regard and I hope the writing will help clarify things further.
