Curriculum Vitae:

    Born in Roswell, New Mexico, 1953. Raised in Tucson, Arizona.

    Chrismated into the Orthodox Church, 1974.

    Master of Arts degree in (teaching) English as a Second Language, University of Arizona, 1977.

    Moved to Japan, 1979.

    Married Naomi Sophia Ozaki, at the Holy Resurrection Cathedral, Tokyo, 1981. O anhr authV hnesen authn, Pollai qugatereV ekthsanto plouton, pollai epoihsan dunata, su de uperkeisai kai uperhraV pasaV.
    (Ihr Mann lobt sie: «Es sind wohl viele tüchtige Frauen, du aber übertriffst sie alle. / Su esposo la alaba: Muchas mujeres han realizado proezas, pero tú las superas a todas. [Prov. 31:28-29])

    One daughter, born 1982. Permanently disabled and living at home.

    Took up study of Greek, ca. 1996.

    A pilot page of an Interlinear Greek-Japanese Gospel of St. John was rejected by a religious publisher in Tokyo, ca. 1997. (A Jesuit classicist scholar who reviewed the page objected to the pronunciation scheme from the Greek textbook I'd been using.)

    Took up biblical studies, 1999-2000.

    Bought my first computer and resurrected the interlinear Gospel, Feb. 2000. It was published by the Holy Resurrection Cathedral, Tokyo, some time before Pascha, 2004.

    Feel free to visit my Greek Lectionary for Orthodox at http://lectionary.tripod.com/.)

    Currently an instructor at Nevada-California International Consortium of Universities and Colleges, Tokyo, preparing Japanese high school graduates for foreign study.
