Hi, a bit about myself, I'm originally from Japan, but have lived in the US for the past 10 years. I went to a college in Providence, Rhode Island, and lived in New York City for 3 years afterwards. After getting enough of the hectic NYC :), I've moved to Charlotte, NC. This year (2008), I quit my job to start traveling around the world extensively. I traveled around South America this past spring for 3 months, and I traveled the southern Africa and the middle east this past fall. I'm currently planning my next trip to India next year. I'm also planning to travel in the southeast Asia for a few months, later this year.
I'm a system engineer for investment banks, although currently without a job by design (not because of a layoff in the current economy, which some people assume what happened to me, but anyway :).
