Where does this person sound like he's from? Here are two recordings of his speech:

Don't hear any accent, from a CA native perspective. This person could be from CA.

I'm going to say definitely Northeast US. Guess would be Long Island.

I don't think you are native US speaker, the way you say some words sound a bit Japanese or east Asian. But I'm not an expert(might just be your idiolect) and if I'm wrong I'm gonna guess somewhere in the upper midwest or inland northeast due to the very wide vowels you have.

Well? Don't leave us hanging, OP. This was tough to decipher, and I have to know.
