To become the world's greatest travel show host. Seriously.
A writer at heart, I can never get enough of stories. I think this is the main reason I love travel. I grew up in Tokyo, Japan, and I feel it stretched my cultural perceptions at an early age; I think this is the reason I wound up studying anthropology.
I have pursued a plethora of career paths in my life, and have worked as a puppeteer, game show host, martial arts instructor, dog-sitter, chiropractic assistant, life-skills teacher, etc. Presently, I am enjoying working at a non-profit, independent high school, because I get to interact with kids who have been disenfranchised at other institutions. I also get to practice my non-profit marketing skills, which is a joy.
I am very easy-going, respectful, and would love to meet you!
I love manifesting the impossible, and empowering others to do the same.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I would love to try couchsurfing, and am trying to convince my boyfriend we should start hosting people, as I think it is a wonderful way to travel without leaving home.
Once I stayed at the house of a Mexican shaman while he was out of town (I guess that's more house-sitting, and it was rather more hammock-surfing), while I was researching traditional medicine in the Yucatan. He had lots of weird things around the house, little bottles, feathers... I shared the house with a Mayan sculptor, who made me the most beautiful little turtle-shaped back massager out of wood--I still have it!
