About

My name is Jeff Meyer. My wife is Emily Meyer. We are both from the USA, most recently in the environs of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. I was born in Van Wert, Ohio on October 9, 1972, but moved when I was one. Grew up in Buffalo, New York; Mobile, Alabama; and Tomball, Texas. Graduated with a Film degree from University of Texas Austin in 1994. Lived and worked in Yellowstone National Park for 8 years. Then three years in Moscow, Idaho getting a Masters of Education plus Teaching Certification for Secondary Social Studies at the University of Idaho. This was followed by three years living and teaching in Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan as part of the JET Programme.

I started this blog when Emily and I were living and teaching English in Iquique, Chile for four months. We were there as volunteers with English Opens Doors program and both taught at pre-k-8 public schools. That was our second experience teaching English abroad, having spent 2005-2008 as part of the JET Programme in Sapporo. I folded the blog I started in Japan called kurionekamakura (minus photos) into Elven Space Helmet after its original blog site (JetBlag) went under.

After our experience in Chile,  we headed back to Yellowstone National Park to live and work. In August 2012, we moved to Missoula, Montana as I earned a M.A. in History at the University of Montana. For the last three years, we have spent our summer/falls living in the ghost town of Ashcroft, CO while employed by the Aspen Historical Society. The Elven Space Helmet will accompany us on our journeys, wherever they may lead us. Chinstrap Optional.
