  5. Choosing anyone in the world, who would you like to have as a dinner guest and why?
    An ancestor. I’d like to learn about my lineage.

I’m an American, born in Okinawa, Japan from immigrant parents. Growing up we traveled the world with the U.S. military. Among my travels, we passed through South Bend, and on a chance re-visit, I set some roots here. I still love to travel, take trips to the beach, hike, and camp. I married a South Bend native, who is a huge ND fan. We are raising two children, a dog, a cat, and a bunny. We do a decent job with the kids, but the animals think they’re in charge.
