INTERESTS AND ACTIVITIES
I have been a member of a Kumamoto Prefecture league basketball team for over 7 years. I enjoy almost all other sports as well. Someday, I would like to coach basketball, baseball or swimming at a competitive level.
I have enjoyed a wide range of experiences while living in Japan. I appreciate many aspects of my life in this country.
I enjoy other things with great adoration: my wife and 3 children, music, good food and nature.
