My interests include all things Japanese. I lived in Japan for a year; I am a JET Program alumnus. I also lived and traveled in Japan for 2 months in the summer of 2013 and again for 2 months in the summer of 2014. Thank you Japanese people and Japan. All things Spanish and Latin American also hold my interest. I love theater, dance and music, Noh, kabuki, and tango. Thai classical dance and Thai traditional massage are also interests (and Thai food!). Yoga, as well. I am an independent trekker and freelance (amateur) landscape designer (tropical, subtropical, and native south Florida trees and plants).
