Where I Came From

I was born in Virginia and moved to Florida when I was four years old. I grew up stubborn, bookish, and sarcastic, and I like to think I haven’t changed much since.

In high school, I was your typical overachiever. At college I purposely did not overachieve, and still managed to somehow get a T-shirt when I graduated.

this is me surprised!

I worked in Orlando for a little while, lived downtown, loved my life.

At work, however, I was bored. So I started a magazine, but that didn’t challenge me either. Then I decided to move to LA – with no job, no contacts, and no real clue what I was doing – to try my hand at celebrity publicity. Luckily for me, that all worked out fine.

Then I met My Better Half (MBH), and we fell in love. And moved to Virginia and then to Japan.

And that’s where this story begins.

        But I haven’t been to America in a long time. I’ve lived in Japan my entire adult life…it has become home.

        I like Yokohama! Did you see Chinese New Year at Yokohama Chinatown?
        When did you come to Japan? How long will you stay?
