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, UW, and now Highline. At Highline, I teach English& 101, English 205, and English 200. I'm also 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, Fulham FC, or Premier League soccer, let me know!
