I’m a freelance content writer specializing in all things Japan. Given Japan’s rich culture and long history, lots of people are wanting to learn more about Japan, whether it’s language, culture, or how to navigate the train system.

That’s where I come in. I’m here to support blogs and companies educate clients about Japan, whether through blog posts and articles or research and white papers.

I’m passionate and knowledgeable and do my utmost best to share my expertise with you.


I was born and raised in a tiny mountain community in northern California. I have a B.A. in Japanese Studies from Willamette University and studied abroad in Kawagoe, Japan at Tokyo International University. I’m also a published poet and fiction writer — one of my stories was even nominated for a Pushcart Prize! I occasionally share poetry, short fiction pieces, and other musings on my side blog Cat and Moth Writings.

On my blog I share articles, book reviews, studying habits and goals, and more!

Feel free to check out my portfolio, or just contact me! I’m also on LinkedIn and Twitter.

I look forward to hearing from you.
