Alexandra Brueckner

Alexandra Brueckner originally hails from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but also calls Cologne, Germany and Aomori, Japan home. She currently lives in rural northern Japan, where she attempts to explain the confusing labyrinths of the English language to Japanese high schoolers while also devouring as much sushi as humanly possible and perfecting the “deer in headlights” look when someone asks her a question in Japanese. You can read her blog here and follow her on Twitter here.
