Hailing from Central Pennsylvania, I learned to love to travel at a young age with my family’s annual road trips to famous destinations all across the Southern and Eastern United States. These road trips coupled with a trip to the Grand Canyon in 2006 solidified my desire to travel. Along the way, I have acquired a taste for colonial architecture and meeting interesting people in every aspect of my travels.
I studied abroad in Tokyo in 2011 and experienced the Great Tohoku Earthquake. In the interim, I finished my undergraduate degree and returned to Japan for work.
To date, I have visited 31 of the 50 United States, three Canadian Provinces, Israel, the Czech Republic, most of Japan, and 16 other East Asian countries.
