I was born in Memphis, Tennessee, and have lived in Japan since 1976. I teach at Waseda University, where my focus is the American South and its history, culture and literature.

I remember being completely fascinated with Japan when I first arrived in Japan during my graduate studies, when I traveled to almost every part of Japan, seeing and learning as much as I can. I am looking forward to meeting people through FindJPN and being able to be part of the visitors’ experiences in Japan.

    Experience being at a Japanese University with a Professor

    Experience being at a Japanese University with a Professor I had a really great time with Professor Jim at the Waseda University. I have always wanted to learn more about the daily life of Japanese people and Jim gave me the insights that I was looking for. It was fun walking through the campus and learning about all the different buildings before having a really interesting conversation with Jim in his office where I got to know more about the Japanese culture from a foreigner's point of view. We ended the day with a chat over a very delicious lunch in one of the restaurants nearby the campus. Surely one of the best experiences I had in the time that I was in Tokyo and it was really nice getting to know Jim.

    Experience being at a Japanese University with a Professor

    Experience being at a Japanese University with a Professor I had a wonderful time on the Waseda campus, one of Tokyo's most prestigious universities. Unfortunately it was still summer vacation and I couldn't see a class in action, but it was fun walking over the main campus.

    Above all though, I had a great time meeting and getting to know Jim. He's been in Japan for longer than I've been alive and I had a great time chatting with him about various topics including Japan and education.
