Born and raised in the green pastures of Christchurch, NZ. Moved to Wellington for high school and came straight to Japan upon graduation for a working holiday.
Fell in love with traveling and decided to settle down in Tokyo after graduating university.
I ran night-club events and taught English for a couple of years until getting native-level proficiency in Japanese but my love of traveling means it is hard to juggle work like this so currently working as an international exchange coordinator / interpreter for 6 months a year and traveling for the other 6!!!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I have travelled most of Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas.
I usually stay in hostels while travelling and have a great time with other travellers but I would love to try couchsurfing so as to get a better feel of the world through the eyes of natives.
