Información

I grew up in a small conservative town in western Canada and am now teaching English at Konan University in Kobe, Japan. During my college days at the University of Calgary, I met a few Japanese Canadians, including an office administrator who was a sister-in-law to Joy Kogawa. After coming to Japan I was fortunate to come in contact with several fascinating Japanese Canadians who had been illegally deported to Japan after the war and have lived in Japan ever since. A couple years ago I started my present research on the life histories of these exiles and am finding it to be the most fulfilling research I have ever done. I hope to continue this research and eventually develop some English language education materials around these life histories.
