Background/bio
I'm a computer science teacher and technology manager at a school in Yokohama. I'm doing something I love in one of the best cities on the planet; I'm very happy. I've lived in Japan for almost half of my life and moving here was the best decision I've ever made. If you're in your twenties I encourage you to move overseas for a couple of years. Get out of your comfort zone, meet new people and become independent. It's the best thing you'll ever do.
