Connor 講師 & イベント立案


Hello! My name’s Connor. I come from a small town in New South Wales Australia called Lismore, known for its rainfall and a bit of a hippie scene. I grew up with my big sister, our dog Pappy, and both our parents’ love of music. I’ve been really into science fiction from a young age, an interest that has led me to enjoy Japanese anime in high school and eventually – along with some great travel experiences to Europe and Japan – decided to come and live here! Teaching is something I’ve always wanted to do, and working here at Beans is turning out to be truly fulfilling.
