A graduate of San Francisco State University with a BA in Japanese, I possess many varied interests and experiences. I lived in Botswana as a child, leading me to an unending thirst for knowledge of world cultures, a thirst supported by my faith (Baha'i) and by my family. I also love to read, and I tend to read mostly science fiction and fantasy, though I read virtually all kinds of fiction, genre or not, and occasionally even some non-fiction, usually related either to culture, education or language. I lived in Japan for about 10 months working for Nova as an English teacher, and came back for nefarious purposes... er, I mean, personal reasons. Now I'm on my second contract at SCEA as a game tester.
