Hello! Since you’ve made your way over to this page, I suppose you’d like to learn a little more about the gal behind Chic Pixel. I started this blog as a way to share my love for nerdy Japanese things, particularly otome games, shojo manga, and cute merchandise. Since Chic Pixel was founded in 2011, it has expanded to include a podcast on anime and games as well as a YouTube channel where I try Japanese snacks and show off my latest merchandise hauls.

I currently live in Brisbane, Australia, but I was born and raised in the United States and have lived in Japan a number of times, including a one year exchange at Kwansei Gakuin Daigaku during my undergraduate studies. I’m always looking forward to my next trip back!
