My name's Joe Suzuki-Parker. I was born in Seattle, Washington, USA. I graduated from the University of Colorado with a double major in Japanese Literature and Asian Studies with a focus on pre-Meiji era literature. I live in Japan with my wife and two furry little kids (cat and dog).
In short, I have experienced the stresses of live performing; management; war; college; classroom teaching; police academy training; multiracial relationships; the green card process; international living; and much more. If any of the above pokes your interest then I think you will enjoy this blog as my writing is ultimately influenced by my past experiences.
