About Me


go go go.


I like being here, there and want to go absolutely everywhere!
Tried and true Alaskan with a thirst for wanderlust. Attended university in Edinburgh, had a brief stint in Hawaii as a WWOOFer, and now I find myself settled for two years in Japan. Working as an English teacher in this wonderfully beautiful and often bizarre country has been an absolute treat.
I crave the mountains and sea, can't stop buying mugs with animals on, telling my students I am friends with Obama, love riding ferries and eating tacos.
Can't decide between an Irish wolfhound or Australian shepherd mix for my future dog, and I will never give up trail running or Alaska.

One day I want to drive a Winnebago or VW camper van across the US, down through Central America and into Chile. It'll happen too.


Keep it simple, not difficult difficult lemon difficult.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately I don't even have much more than a level-floor space the size of a match-box for you to sleep on. I am always interested in meeting new folks and showing you my tiny Tottori-town.


Couchsurfed in Oslo, spent a sunny afternoon toboganning the Olympic course.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: 180 degrees south, some like it hot, where the wild things are.

Books: born to run, let my people go surfing, in cold blood, into the wild, forever on the mountain, going to extremes,

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Kayaked in bioluminescence, ran a marathon around Loch Ness, road tripped across India.

Teach, Learn, Share

Limited as it may be, I can teach you some Japanese, and help you with any taco pinata constructions you may be struggling with. I want to learn how to use a sling-shot and how to unicycle. Maybe knit.
