Kelsey Phillip Payne @ Magnet Shreveport geography

Kelsey Phillip Payne is a philosophy grad of Adolphus Gustavus College (06), who has spent 4 years in Japan.

Born in Los Angeles and partly raised in Shreveport, he attended secondary school in Nashville before going to Minnesota to attend Gustavus.

In Japan he lived in Osaka and on the island of Shikoku in the city of Hamamatsu. He has spent several years teaching English to Japanese teens and is a translator.

His lectures and handout address the language and culture of Japan. We are delighted to listen to and interact with such a well-schooled student of the culture of Nihon.
