First a bit of background information on myself. Originally from Texas, I have worked in the football/soccer retail for more than the 10+ years. For much of that time I worked as the Footwear Manager for The Soccer Corner and More based in North Texas. In 2017, I decided to make a giant leap in my personal life and move to Japan. This is not the first time I have lived overseas, having previously lived in the UK for 5 years. And now to the blog. I hope to offer some insights based on my expertise of working in the industry for so long as well as giving an insight into the Japanese football industry as well.
