About

I am an American who has lived in Sendai, Japan since 2010. My mother is Japanese, and I have heard Japanese spoken to me my whole life. I began study of Japanese starting from highschool, and earned a minor in Japanese in college. My work in Japan is not related to language, but I exclusively use Japanese in my daily life other than talking with my parents on the phone, or purposely speaking English with people here to allow them to practice their English.

Although I do not believe this particular aspect of my experience will be in high demand on this site, I do have a certain (read: acolyte?) level of knowledge in Tohoku-ben/Miyagi-ben/Iwate-ben. Please do understand that I do normally speak hyojungo; I am actually at times praised by native Japanese for my "untainted" pronunciation and non-dialectic word-choice (this is not a brag, I only have heightened self-consciousness/awareness because it is my second language in terms of absolute proficiency).
