About | ブログの紹介

My name is Nick.

I’ve lived in Japan since I graduated from the University of Florida in 2013 with a B.A. in East Asian Languages and Cultures and have spent my professional career in Tokyo, largely in the finance industry. Through my years in this city I have been given an opportunity to see the world through a completely different lens than the one I had growing up in the states.

Tokyo has both lifted me up to fantastic heights that have seemed almost magical while at the same time bringing me face to face with harsh realities that challenged me to the point where I questioned what I thought to know was true. And with these challenges to my long-held beliefs, I started to examine everything around me to a degree that I had not before.

This website will be a place for me to write about particular things that I wish to examine, be it politics or pop culture. Whatever the topic, I look to write about it in a manner that leaves both myself and the reader with the opportunity to consider things in a new perspective, much as Tokyo has done for me.

Thank you for reading!
