    Japan - Last active: 11 days ago - Tests: 6

    Language is my passion, and my love of language is the constant theme in all of my pursuits. I currently work as an English teacher in Japan, where I design fun, original lesson plans in both Japanese and English. I'm also a capable translator of Japanese to English, my love of both tongues ensuring that working with them never feels like work. A graduate of The College of William and Mary, I completed my college's rigorous creative writing degree, including studying under the acclaimed poet Joshua Poteat. I also got a taste of marketing in college, founding, promoting, and leading my own film club, which has continued to be a success after my graduation. I hope my eye for honing any kind of text to perfection can be of service to you!

    I was born and raised in Japan but grew up in an international household. I moved to the California in my childhood and became a native-level English speaker while maintaining my Japanese language skills at home and in school. I was recently a finalist in the Manga Translation Battle held by the Japan's Agency for Cultural Affairs and was the recipient of the Audience Choice Award. Preserving the casual tone of the original manga was a challenge, but a welcome one; I am confident in my abilities to interpret subtle Japanese idioms into English without losing its flavor and nuances. I have a great eye for detail and visual language. I honed my skills at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco where I became proficient at working with watercolors, oil painting, acrylics, Adobe Photoshop, and mixed media. I've been the recipient of several awards including first place Artistic Handwriting in the World Handwriting Contest.

I have extensive experience in both the study and application of the Japanese language. Since my first year of college, I have only lived with native speakers, resulting in a much higher proficiency than that of a normal candidate. This will continue as my wife is Japanese and that is the language spoken at home. Thank you for your time and consideration.
