Kino Ren was born in Florida, grew up in Illinois, and spends most of his time procrastinating from doing work. He enjoys playing chess, watching anime, reading webnovels, drinking beer, traveling, and doing nothing of significant importance as he wanders aimlessly through life though he does always tell himself otherwise. He has a degree in Mathematics at the University of Illinois that he has used exactly 0 times and a minor in English which he has used exactly one time. He is currently located in Tokyo, Japan and works as a English teacher. Oh… and I suppose he enjoys this so called writing thing too.
