About Me

OK, here’s a quick rundown of who I am and why I’m here…
Originally from England where I spent some time making Playsation and PS2 games before developing an “interest/obsession” with Japan and all things Japanese which led to giving up my live in the world of video games to move to Kansai in Japan with my then girlfriend (and now, wife) and start teaching English at Nova.

When they went belly up I luckily found another job and have been working outside of the English teaching field (seemingly a rarity for a Westerner in Japan) for the past 2-3 years.
This blog is mainly about living in Japan, but I have another website and blog, mainly about booze, so if you have time, please check that one out too.
