I'm a hapa-yonsei-Japanese American from Gardena, California. I've been teaching college courses for over 20 years now--at Iowa State University, the University of Washington, and now Highline. At Highline, I teach English& 101, English 205, and English 200. Currently, I'm the coordinator for the DGS Department.

I love to write poetry, and I also review books for the International Examiner. And if you want to talk Sounders or Premier League soccer, let me know!
