About Erin

My passion for storytelling began with her drive to balance her two distinct cultures as a Japanese and American woman. I've spent six years working full-time for various Japanese firms and was a semi-finalist in the Screencraft Comedy Short competition along with Allison. She enjoys culturally diverse and female empowerment stories. I believe television and movies, once a window into the American culture, will be the ideal avenue to express the complexities of the society I love today.

Unique traits: • Advanced in Japanese (bi-lingual and bi-literate) • Advanced in Microsoft Office Suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint; beginner level Access) • 80-85 WPM • Travel to 20 different countries before I turned 30
