Joel came to Japan for a year out between jobs in October, 2000.  That year turned out to be so full of fun and adventure that he stayed.  And then stayed some more.  Now, he divides his time between teaching, and writing, with a little bit of photography thrown in for good measure.  He loves to travel both inside and outside Japan and is currently planning where to go next.  More information can be found on Twitter .
