I began studying Japanese when I was in high school. I grew up in Hawaii, where the Japanese culture is mixed in with various other cultures, and I had an immediate interest in Japanese culture and language, as well as the way the English language differs for many people and why a dialect of Hawaiian Pidgin came about. I have a lot of respect for those around me who pursue interests in other languages.

I have a lot of hobbies. I like board games, video games, tennis, weightlifting, and reading, among many other things.
