My name is Landon and I live in Charlotte, NC. I have a strong passion for Japanese culture, fine wines, gourmet food, financial topics, and Magic: The Gathering. I enjoy new experiences such as traveling to other countries, trying new restaurants, and attending Japanese related conventions around North Carolina.
I play competitive Magic at many of the local hobby shops around Charlotte, NC. My success has ranged from a Store Champion to a Regional Pro Tour Qualifier participant. The main formats I play are Standard, Pioneer, Limited, and Elder Dragon Highlander.
I present at Japanese conventions around Charlotte, NC. on planning a trip to Japan and making sushi at home. I have been to Japan on two separate occasions totaling over 20 days. From these experiences, I try to share my knowledge with others to plan a dream trip of their own and enjoy sushi with others.
I am also a recent graduate (Fall 2019) from the Belk School of Business at the University of North Carolina in Charlotte. I received a Master of Business Administration (MBA). I am looking forward to applying what I learned through my job , hobbies, and community outreach.
When I am not working or participating in hobby related activities, I spend time with my lovely wife Ashley. We have a social group of friends around the local area. You can often find us trying new restaurants, participating in wine tastings, attending concerts, or visiting with friends on a weekend afternoon.
