Trying to bring as much happiness into the world around me as I can
I'm a chilled-out guy who just wants to enjoy my life and do what I can to help those around me enjoy theirs, while at the same time doing my best not to harm other beings.I'm a vegetarian (vegan where I can be, e.g. at home), but I'm not a fascist and I don't try to force my ideas and beliefs on other people.I like to party, but I also like to chill. I love the outdoors, but I'm still a real city boy.At the moment, I'm living in Japan, trying improve my Japanese, learn new things, meet new people, have new experiences, and save for a great adventure I'm planning.
Be happy and help others to be happy
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've got a spare room that I can offer for people to crash in. I'm also happy to show people around Tokyo (and Yokohama and Kamakura). Basically I'm happy to help where I can.
Of course, when the time comes, I'm hoping to find people who'll do the same for me in other places.

Teach, Learn, Share
I'm happy to teach what I know about languages (mostly English, German and Japanese), economics, food and a whole heap of other things.
As far as learning, I'd like to learn everything if it were possible, so I'll take what I can get.
