TJP About Banner 3

I love Japan. I’ve been learning Japanese, both in college and self-study, since 2011.

With the 2020 Olympics taking place in Tokyo, lots of people are wanting to learn more about Japan, whether it’s language, politics, or how to navigate the train system.

That’s where I come in.

I’m here to support blogs and companies helping others appreciate Japan.

I’m passionate and knowledgeable and will do my utmost best to share that passion and knowledge with you.


I was born and raised in Cobb, California. I have a B.A. in Japanese Studies from Willamette University and studied abroad in Kawagoe, Japan at Tokyo International University. During the rare instances when I’m not writing, I study Japanese, go kayaking, practice yoga, or read one of the 5+ books on my nightstand. I also write poetry and short fiction pieces on my side blog Cat and Moth Writings.

Check out my portfolio and blog, or just contact me!

I’m also on LinkedIn and Twitter.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
