About Me

I live in Tokyo


I like to dance to music, and talk to friendly strangers I like to read books alone then laugh at the jokes when noones around to hear it.

I talk to people and ask them provocative q's

I organise and promote a regular burlesque event in Japan with Japanese and international performers.

I am in a retro-cabaret band called 'The Tragicomics'. I play the accordion and we do/have done shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto etc.

I have lived in Canberra, Brisbane, and Gold Coast in Australia, I have also lived in coastal New Zealand when I was around 10, and I lived in Tokyo in 2009, then have lived in Kobe, Osaka and Bangkok.

When it comes to travel, I prefer to visit one town or area and stay there for a long time to soak in the culture and meet as many people as I can. I have spent so much time on-and-off in places (like Thredbo, Sydney and Melbourne) that I consider them former homes.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

Im the moderator of the Japan CS group, which is really easy, because everyone is really nice.
