I grew up in South Carolina in the southeastern United States. I was raised in a musical family, and the arts have always been an important part of my life. I lived in Kyushu for 6 years and in Hawaii for three years. In total, I have taught English for about 14 years. I enjoy making friends, making music, making art, teaching English, and studying foreign languages. I feel most satisfied when I am surrounded by nature, engrossed in a good book or movie, or traveling somewhere new. I am married and enjoy spending as much time as possible with my wife, my son, and my daughter. I have lived in Japan for many years, but I do not know much about the Kantou region. Please help me to learn about Kantou, and I will tell you many interesting things about the USA. I look forward to talking with you.
