I'm a professional guitar maker and artist who lives in Akune, Japan. I teach English part-time during the week at Akune Jr. High school and rarely pass a weeknight or weekend without working at guitar-building in my kobo to fill custom guitar orders. If such a thing as a weeknight or weekend without working on custom guitar orders existed, I would probably spend it yellowtail and halibut fishing with friends. Painting, drawing, making sculpture and writing round out the kinds of making I'm keeping busy with. I play a little guitar too. Belief system: Cultivate the world into a better place through self-transformation and self-discovery by making things, and teaching people how to make things.
