Kiana on Japanese TV NHK

Time in Japan

  • Before coming to the US in 2010, I was a major geek.
  • I studied electrical engineering in universities in Japan for six years.
  • But I also enjoyed contributing to society.
  • That’s why I worked as a guest star on a Japanese TV show called Generation Y which aired 2008 -2010 on Japanese national TV, NHK.
  • We talked about social issues such as Japan’s population decrease, finance, politics, sperm banks, and makeup.

Our Pi Day Wedding

My Partner in Crime

  • I was married to my Aussie rocket scientist husband, Matt, on THE Pi day of the century:
    March 14th, 2015
  • We cut our wedding cake right at 9:26:53 to honor Pi:
  • We got married in Hawaii to be halfway between Australia and New York. Also, we both love the beach.
