Doug Durgee

A freelance translator of 14+ years and part-time Airbnb Superhost/landlord. Douglas and family have recently traded the mountains of Tohoku for those of sunny Colorado. When not translating or hosting, he enjoys snowboarding, hiking, bodyweight/gymnastic strength training, home improvements, and subjecting his impressionable 8-year-old son to "new classic" 80s/90s movies (“Party on, dude”).
