Karatsu-shi, Saga-ken, 2010-2013
I am looking forward to 2017, working with a great group of leaders finding new ways of engaging JET Alumni in our community and bringing people together to celebrate Japan, the JET Programme, and our shared experiences.
Aside from eating the local farm’s delicious mikans and getting demolished in lunchtime games of dodgeball, my favorite part of JET was meeting all the friendly and adventurous fellow JETlings. I aim to keep that spirit alive here in LA by exploring the city’s food and culture with fellow JET alums, and getting out to the surrounding area’s mountains and natural spaces. Excélsior!

All fellow JETs I met during my time in Japan were supremely kind and welcoming. I hope to repay this community’s generosity by serving as your treasurer this year.

I love to connect alumni and help leverage relationships in order to facilitate professional growth. Attorney, basketball, networking, eating well.
I love craft beer, snowboarding, and boardgames, and my goal is to plan fun, diverse events that pull lurkers back into the fold!

I’m a law student constantly in search of ramen. Excited for a great year of Japanese language and cultural events with JET alums across Southern California.
