In the late 90s, I went to go live in Japan to teach English. I was craving adventure and an experience that would give me a broader perspective on the world.

My experience in Japan made me a citizen of the world and taught me the value of patience when I don't understand something. I spent three years teaching English in the public schools in a remote town in Hokkaido. I was the only non-Japanese person living in that town. Because of that, I learned to speak Japanese well (level 2 proficiency - level one is near native proficiency).

My time in Japan also developed my aesthetic sense. For 6 months I trained with an indigo master in Tokushima. This was one of the most challenging things I had ever done because as a student in Japan you have to operate with extreme humility and deference toward the teacher and the craft. I had to learn how to slow down and be quiet.

More than 20 years later I am still grateful for the lessons I learned in Japan and I consistently bring these teachings into my own work.
