For the past 40 years my passion in life = TRAVEL. After finishing a special assignment with the Japanese government in 1990, I returned to the USA to start my own travel consulting firm which specialized in customized travel programs to Japan focusing on art, architecture, design and cuisine. Over time I realized that a new voice and face was needed to share the artistic and cultural traditions of this great nation which is so much more than Geishas and Fujiyama! Presently I am cataloging many of the special cultural events I produced over the years in Japan.
In addition I have discovered that my Grandfather Clifton Lessing, who was an amateur photographer and filmmaker, captured Japan, Korea and Taiwan in the early 1960s when he was working in Asia as an Aviation Engineer. I am now editing his films and plan to incorporate them into my own films which I plan to debut in 2011.
