I graduated from The University of Findlay with a Bachelor of Arts in Japanese and a Studio Art Minor. For a year, I studied abroad at Daito Bunka University in Saitama Prefecture, Japan. While in Japan, I had a part-time job helping students with pronunciation and grammar at a small Eikaiwa, or English Language School. After graduation, I continued studying Japanese on my own and have received my TESOL certificate, so I can tutor English and Japanese. In my spare time I write scripts, play video games, and study Chinese.
