About Me


To find out how the world works


American but born and raised in Japan, university in the UK and France. Currently working in Tokyo.

I tend to have a magical notion of places I haven't been to but I haven't been let down yet.


Everything is connected.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Couchsurfing was hugely helpful and enjoyable throughout my four years of university in Europe.

Now that I'm settling down in Tokyo I might be able to try some hosting.


Surfed several times in London, including a crazy Christmas Eve party, as well as on an InterRail-ing Eurotrip, when it really saved us over New Year's.


I'm a writer and a reader, I love snowboarding and soccer, I play drums and like dubstep; in general I have too many interests to get very good at any one of them. I'm working on that.

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm picky within a lot of genres.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going to a city I had never heard of in a country where I knew almost no one in a continent I had never been to, and having a life-changing university experience there.

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't mind talking philosophy and politics, but more usefully I can show you Tokyo.
