This is a page summarizing what I’m doing now. Now as in currently. It is updated somewhat regularly with an earnest interest in keeping it current.

What I’m up to now (in no particular order):

  • Focusing on business because I’m trying to get married, move from an apartment into a house, visit my family in the USA and generally live my life like I’m here to get something out of it
  • Scrapping dead-end projects, tying up loose ends, and generally working to be less thinly spread
  • Totally reevaluating what I’m doing with my life job-wise and changing my approach. As an immigrant, I am limited by a number of legal and practical considerations, so I can’t currently do what I want to do in the way I want to do it. That having been said:
    • I’m launching a business that will allow me to leverage my language-teaching/editing background for far greater rewards and create both passive and low-maintenance sources of income.
      • Given the structure of this business, it will also allow me to establish a studio and office workspace for the creation of educational materials. That studio/workspace will also be my photo studio.
  • Making images for several projects, including a project documenting payphones and telephone booths in the nighttime urban landscape of the greater Tokyo area
  • Getting back to writing seriously and redeveloping my blog project Somewhere in Japan (still under wraps, but I promise it’ll be good)
      • Put your email in the form over at to get notified when it launches
  • Trying to use Japanese more in everyday life and attempting to pop the English language bubble in which I live
  • Getting my shit together in any way I can because life moves fast and ain’t nobody got time to waste
