About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To travel the world, learn new culture, have fun, and gain new perspective and experience.

ABOUT ME

I'm a 26 year old American guy. I am hoping to meet new friends from all over the world. I was born in western New York and didn't travel much until I entered university. One month after graduating I moved to Japan, and I have been living here for the past 3 years. I enjoy meeting new people, learning new cultures, and basically anything interesting.

Currently I'm working as an English Teacher in Osaka, Japan. I am also studying to become an International Student Advisor for university exchange students.

PHILOSOPHY

The ability to adapt to change is one of the greatest strengths we have. In the modern world everything is changing, so I open myself up to new ideas. Gaining new perspective is one of the greatest rewards of all.

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I have walked in sacred forests with 2000 year old cedar trees, purified my soul at the temple on the lands where the Shinto gods were believed to have descended into this realm. I have climbed the Tokyo Sky Tree (634m) and climbed Mt. Fuji. I have sailed across the sea on a ship like the Titanic. I'm hoping to continue adding to this list.
