Hi.  I'm Melissa.

I'm a lover of all things, an eternal optimist and someone who will never stop asking...what's next?

I spent my 20's in New York and Los Angeles and my 30's in Minneapolis, at ad agencies building the world's biggest brands. 

I am lucky enough to have been reunited with my high school sweetheart Steve and together we are trying our best to raise two amazing humans: Anders (5) and Chase (3). 

As I embark on this next decade of life,  I am thrilled to have the chance to call Tokyo home.
