Author description

He has worked on creating many innovative resources for Japanese language learning, including Japanese textbooks, national and state curricula, online resources and several Japanese series aired on television. Peter's love and fascination with obento led him to see how the many parts of a well-balanced Japanese course could be connected in a uniquely Japanese package, which led him to develop the concept for this series. In his spare time, Peter is often seen at IKEA and builds small boats to sail round the Pacific.
