2014 41st Tengen title, Preliminary round B
In 2014, he qualified as a professional with the Kansai Ki-in.
2013 teacher at Osaka Go camp
His father is an American and mother is a Japanese. He was an amateur player, born in North Carolina, attended university in the United States and subsequently lived in Osaka, Japan, where he became an insei of the Kansai Kiin. In 2010, he placed second in the US Open.
Hyperpape I believe the chronology is wrong: in 2010 when he played in the US Open, the reports were that he had been an insei in Japan where he had spent some/much of his youth, but was coming to the US for college.
He was a student of Maeda Ryo ( http://www.usgo.org/news/2010/08/handling-3-3-invasions-the-maeda-way/, http://lifein19x19.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1249&p=25181&hilit=francis+meyer#p25181).
According to his profile at the Kansai Ki-in website his go motto is "Without haste but without rest."
