Colin Moreshead is a Connecticut native who has made his way home after five years in Tokyo. He spent his undergraduate years studying East Asian Studies and Economics at Connecticut’s Wesleyan University and Tokyo’s Waseda University. After completing a postgraduate year at the Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies, Colin worked at several Japanese companies as a designer and consultant while starting a career in journalism. His two years with the New York Times in Tokyo sparked an interest in Japanese media policy and its effect on electoral outcomes. Japanese subculture is lost on Colin; he enjoys following politics, watching Hollywood movies, driving and writing about it all.
