Hello, and welcome to my profile page! I joined the Saddleback College Social Sciences division in January 2012. Prior to this, I taught at Chapman University, Sophia University in Tokyo, Japan, and the University of California, Irvine. I specialize in East Asian history with a focus on modern Japan, and teach the World History survey and East Asian history (History 4, 5, 70, and 71).
