My first love is Aikido, which I’ve studied for more than 20 years. I also trained in Brazilian Jujutsu for six years, and dabbled in other fighting arts here and there. I got interested in the Spartan Race when it came to Japan in 2017, and have been enjoying cross-training both outdoors and in the gym for the past several years.
I grew up in the midwestern United States and came to Japan in 2004. I get along well with: Windows servers, cameras, kettlebells, home audio stuff, and beer.
