My familiarity lies with literature, anime and manga, and equestrian-related topics. The first I gained through formal study, the latter two through extensive personal experience. I have also played video games as a hobby so I have some knowledge of the Nintendo and Playstation platforms.
About MeI graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Northern British Columbia in 1999. My English skills have been polished since then through writing articles for the e-zine Sequential Tart as well as editing and writing the newsletter of the Central Interior Arabian Horse Association. Also, I have been writing fiction as a hobby for many years. Writing articles about Japanese pop culture for Sequential Tart and Anime Insider taught me the value of professionalism and meeting deadlines.
Four years of Japanese coursework, which included speaking, listening, reading, writing and classical Japanese skills, gave me a good basis in the language. I lived and worked in Japan for 15 months, immersed in the language and culture. I recently obtained my Level 2 in the Japanese Proficiency Test.
