Husband, Father, Teacher, Journalist. Tokyoite, Atlantan, Afro-American. Globetrotter, Homebody. Storyteller, Story-Listener. Historian, Futurist. Striving to leave the world better than I found it.
I have traveled back and forth to Japan for about 20 years now-- been fascinated with this place since I was a child, and if you ask me why-- honestly, I couldn't really explain. I've also done brief stints in Taiwan and Singapore too.
Professionally I am a journalist primarily covering East Asia and the tech sectors, and have worked in TV, film, print, radio, and multimedia/web since...well before DSL and WiFi! I love working with video and multimedia as a producer the most, but I'm happy doing anything in the New Media realm. I was a teacher of English and Mass Communication at a large private school in Tokyo, A full-time International News Editor for a large Asian media conglomerate and still work as a freelancer based in Tokyo from time to time.
For fun, I like to wander around my part of the Tokyo Metropolis on a very small scooter and take pictures of nifty neighborhoods, expansive landscapes, delicious food and personable people.
