Through the recommendations of Ken Chu, I was invited to join the RPGFan Team at the turn of the millennium. As an Import Reviews Editor and Japanese-English Translator, I am responsible for providing you, the readers, with detailed coverage of the latest RPG offerings from Japan. After a two year hiatus due to time constraints, I have returned as of April 2003 to resume my position with the rest of the staff.

When I'm not playing RPGs or working on the site, I am currently a Junior at the University of Washington here in Seattle, making progress towards the completion of a double major in Economics and Japanese Linguistics. I also play extremely competitive DDR and enjoy dipping into the fields of computer programming, digital graphics, and web design. Feel free to drop me an email regarding my work, or questions/comments about anything in general, and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
