The article features Jonathan Sherr, a 1992 graduate of Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Sherr, who got his start in the limelight on the Maharishi School auditorium stage, majored in Japanese in college. He now stars in a Japanese webseries comedy about the trials and tribulations of teaching a foreign language overseas, after starring in a popular Japanese film last year.

Described as 'earnest and unflappably positive' by international CNN interviewers, Sherr rose to success through nearly a decade of dedicated work as a narrator, translator, actor, and English script editor.

Sherr is no stranger to Japanese culture. Having lived in the country for over 12 years, he is at home with its language and customs and has been known to switch over to the director's seat, giving instruction to the editing crews, in Japanese.

In his role of bridging culture and language gaps, Sherr recently co-hosted NHK World TV's 'Japan Unlocked', a show that explores the intricate art of translating some of the country's most famous literary works.
