I love challenging the status quo; especially when there seems to be an underdog in the fight with a valid argument, that few if anyone want to take up… as I am a contrarian who enjoys challenging existing illusions, one truth at a time. Lover of History and Asian Culture. I have traveled to Japan (all 47 Prefectures); China (Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, Hong Kong and Macao), Korea (Seoul and Pusan); Philippines (Manila, Binondo, and Cebu); and Singapore.
I prefer things with a Japan flavor and recently the Philippines as well, but if there is a topic you’d like me to consider… Shoot me a text, message or anything and I’ll be happy to do look at it. I may not agree with you, but I’ll provide you my comments on what I think is going on.
I am first and foremost a Special Agent (AFSC 71S3) with the Air Force Office of Special Investigations (AFOSI); having served six years in Japan in a Counterintelligence role working with my Japanese counterparts. Three of those years was after being trained as a Japan Area Specialist for AFOSI, where I earned my Master’s Degree in Northeast Asian Security Affairs (focused on Japan) from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California. However, I am now a Northeast Asia Regional Area Specialist (16F4D, Japan-focus) as of 2012, serving as a Military Professor for the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies (APCSS) in Honolulu, Hawaii.
