My Japanese is as rusty as a Soviet tractor. My goal is to increase my impoverished vocabulary and to better string sentences and ideas together. 何とか頑張りま～す。
Ask me about the time I visited my company's sister office in Tokyo.
I grew up on anime but always knew that there was a deeper meaning and context involved than just fandom. It seems like I'm naturally attracted to Japanese art, music, comedy and story telling. I visited Kyoto and Tokyo last September and found the experience to be exhilarating, exhausting, humid, and delicious. I regret not being able to visit Osaka. Downtown no Gaki!
Happy to help if I can.
I'm not uploading a sumi-e version of my mugshot. ;)
Born and raised in the USSR, I've been interested in Japanese art and culture for as long as I can remember. Weird fact: I created and help lead a Japanese anime film study class at Queens College.
