Thank you Melissa and Gary!!

On Sunday, Shawn and I took a break from our studies and walked around the Photo Imaging Expo in Tokyo. Thanks to the power of social networking, we were able to meet and enjoy lunch with the dynamic duo of Gary Fong and Melissa Carl. Gary is an incredible entrepreneur and slightly well-known in the photography community. My write up will not do him justice, so I encourage you to read up on Gary for yourself and check out the business website – Gary Fong Inc.

Gary and Melissa were in Japan for the initial launch of Garyโ€™s products to the Japan market. (There is no doubt their products will be well-received in Japan!) We had a great time getting a peak inside their creative minds, as well as listening to their stories on how impressed they are with everything in Japan. We canโ€™t say enough about how down-to-earth and hilarious they are! Maybe it’s the ‘midwest connection’ that Melissa, Shawn and I share. ๐Ÿ™‚ Their energy is contagious and we walked away feeling so inspired!!

Melissa & Gary – We honestly canโ€™t thank you enough for your time. This was an experience we will definitely not forget! (Can you say “C-o-l-l-a-p-s-i-b-l-e”?)ย  We look forward to following the success of your business and meeting up with you on your next trip to Japan.

Arigato gozaimaus!!

    aaawww thanks! We had so much fun with you guys too. It felt like an instant connection for me. I really respect what you guys are doing here in Japan and can’t wait to hear about how things go for you in the next few years. If we come back and you are still in the same place, we will have to come meet your neighbors… they sound so cool!

    Thanks for all the bits of information you gave us on so many things I was curious about. It was super cool to hear your perspective on ‘life in Japan’.

    Good luck with everything and make sure to keep us posted on how things work out with the photography.


    P.S. “C-o-l-l-a-p-s-i-b-l-e” HA HA love it!

    I love the photos of the cherry blossoms. I can’t wait for them to bloom in Washington D.C.
