I was born and grew up in Shizuoka, Japan, watching Japanese anime TV shows and reading manga books just like all my generation of Japanese kids did. I’ve moved a lot after my college: Tokyo, Okinawa, England (RAF Lakenheath), Alaska, Oklahoma, Navajo reservation, before settling in Beaverton, OR in 2012 to study full time for my PhD. I live with my husband of 19 years, Sean who is a USAF veteran, a retired show dog Shiba Inu, and the family of 3 Maine Coon cats. We enjoy RV traveling in our 42-ft motorhome with all our pets.
