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.
