Please see my BLOG for Upcoming events.
As well as writing stories and translating, I also like to get out into the community and have experience in:
Narration concert using projected pictures and music at the All Japan High School Speech Contest held at the National Olympics Memorial Youth Center in Tokyo.
Presentations for teachers on using picture books to teach English at the ETJ (English Teachers in Japan), JALT (Japanese Association of Language Teachers) conferences and meetings throughout Japan and at the mpi Phonics Kids English Tour 2015 and 2106 held in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Fukuoka. Received the “Best of JALT 2014 Award” for a presentation about using picture books and storytelling to teach all age groups.
If you have any plans that I may be able to contribute to or are interested in any of these activities, please contact me.
