About Me

Recently moved back to North America after living in Japan, South Korea and Argentina.


Be kind to every man you meet, for they are all on a difficult journey.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've hosted several people at my old house in Seoul and Japan, and been the grateful recipient of some hosting in Argentina and the US. I'm currently in the process of moving and cannot host anyone at the moment.

Anything written by Steinbeck, Camus, Vonnegut Jr., Gaiman, Hemingway, Conrad, Orwell, Palahniuk, etc.

Anything recorded by Nujabes, Arcade Fire, Brubeck, Outkast, Sigur Ros, Radiohead, TV on the Radio, Daft Punk, etc. but I find myself listening to more and more indie stuff as time goes by!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've been incredibly lucky in the things I've had a chance to see and do. Unfortunately, I was incredibly unlucky in my inability to recall them unless something reminds me of it. So...recently, I got to go on a nice hike in the red rock mountains and a couple months ago I got a chance to see one of the so-called "New 7 Wonders of the World": Iguazu Falls on the border of Argentina and Brasil.

Teach, Learn, Share

I help maintain a list of monthly events going on in Aomori Prefecture:

Also, the main page of that site has a lot of stuff written by local foreigners in the prefecture:
