About Me


The pursuit of happiness


I am:

26 years old,
a rookie fire fighter,
a beginner surfer,
a yoga novice,
a terrible buddhist,
and a passable cook.


I try to live my life for the ultimate goal of happiness. Not just as a mood but as an overarching state of mind that doesn't come and go with rising and falling blood sugar levels ..if that makes sense.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've stayed with hosts in Tokyo and Buenos Aires and joined in their Sunday game of Ultimate Frisbee.

One day I hope to be able to host to get exposure to different languages and cultures.


Japan, 2008: Un-planned couchsurf in Tokyo.

I'd come from Nagano and hadn't arranged accomodation. I was hunting a netcafe to spend the night when, as a peered at a street side map in the rain three french guys told me I looked like I could use a drink. Fast forward several hours and I was at an open mic night at a hiphop joint and still had all my gear with me. Seeing my bags and hearing of my predicament, a local offered me his architecture office to crash in. Was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was on the cover of a maths book for kids when I was 5 or 6. Since then.. not so much.

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess I could help someone with some maths and physics ..more physical concepts these days rather than the mathematical proofs. So if relativity confuses you I might be able to shed some light on it. Maybe.

I'm studying Spanish and the drums so any help on either areas would be cool.
