About Me


Ochanomizu Bob Dylan.


I like cats, hedgehogs, fireflies, learning to hoop dance, and knitting. I also enjoy hamsters and off-white Choinori scooters.

If you want to hang out, message me! I don't do much besides play with awesome little kids all day and try to hula-hoop in my apartment.


Treat every one of the earth's creatures with compassion. kindness, and respect - from the smallest insect to the largest animal.

Kids are hilarious. Stressed out? Hang out with a kid for a few hours.

Cats are like potato chips - you can't have just one.

hahaha. seriously.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Joining the CS community has changed my life for the better. I've met so many amazing people from all over the world. It's such an amazing thing to be a part of.


reading, traveling, knitting, sewing, hooping, listening to music, animals, GHOST HUNTERS!, Japanese classical and modern literature (tanizaki, shonagon, kawabata, to name my favs), world history, gender studies, CAT NOSES. When Japanese guys get tough and roll their R's.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1) Going to England six times and finding my second home.
2) climbing the abandoned train station in Detroit to sit on the roof looking at the cityscape.
3)Moving to Japan; although I sometimes find Japan NOT so amazing. That's just once in a while, though.
