Hello everybody, my name is Joey Shepard, and I am originally from the United States. My hometown is Indianapolis, Indiana, and I also graduated from Indiana University with a degree in comparative literature. I moved to Aichi prefecture in 2013 and taught English for 2 years before I moved to New York City and continued teaching English until 2020. Now, I am back in Aichi and excited to work here in Nagoya. Most of my hobbies relate to music because I am a drummer. Therefore, I really enjoy playing in bands, home-recording, collecting records and cassette tapes, and going to live shows. Let’s talk about music and anything that interests you when you come and study at BRIDGE!
