Michael Bischoff




I grew up near Chicago, Illinois in the Midwestern region of the United States. After finishing high school I eventually moved to Honolulu, Hawaii to attend the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where I studied to get my bachelors and masters degrees. I have lived in Japan before in Tokyo and Yamagata, and now Saitama from 2021. I love to spend time outdoors, going camping, hiking, riding bicycles, and being physically active. Cycling is one of my favorite hobbies. I love riding bicycles for fun, to go places, for exercise, and for sport. I also love to watch all kinds of professional bike racing: road, track, mountain, and BMX. Not only do I like to do outdoor things, but I also like to spend quality time indoors (especially if the weather is bad) doing cooking, watching funny videos on YouTube, and playing video games. I also have a beautiful Siamese cat named Sakura. She brings me a lot of joy and happiness into my life each day.
