Pacific War historian, Japanese translator, author and cat lover.


Background Information

I lived in Japan for 10 years and have interivewed 97 of their WWII veterans for their experiences.

I admire the work of Ernie Pyle who wrote about the US soldiers' own experiences from the trenches. With that in mind, I went back to Japan to interview the veteran pilots and learn about what they went through growing up in 1930's Japan, joining the Navy and fighting in the Pacific War.

I have also visited many of the WWII battle sites that appear in the book, "The Last Zero Fighter".

 

Accomplishments

Degree in Japanese, CSULA.
1st Level Language Proficiency, Japanese Ministry of Education (Monbusho)

Additional Information

I have worked as a historical and language consultant on several films and documentaries including 'Windtalkers', 'The Last Samurai', 'Only the Brave, and 'HBO's The Pacific'. I also was the consultant for EA Game's WWII series of games.
