About Me


Figuring out where I go from here


Well, I`m pretty much fresh out of college. I am currently teaching english in Japan. I tend to be fairly flexible about most things. I enjoy being social but also need my own time. I enjoy the outdoors. My academic interests are politics and philosophy. I am a huge movie buff, and I love animated shows such as the simpsons, futurama, and family guy. I am also a huge seinfeld fan. I am a huge Kungfu movie fan too. Bruce is the man. I am not sure what else to say so I hope this helps some of you. If you have any questions just let me know.


Still fine tuning the personal philosophy stuff, but I kinda see myself as a sponge, in that I am trying to soak up as much as I can. I try to find the humour in things and try not to sweat the small stuff. I like and want to travel because I figure the more I experience how others live their lives the better I will be able to figure out how I want to live mine.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


No real couch surfing experience. I have stayed with friends before in other countries but I haven't tried crashing at strangers houses.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I guess the most interesting thing I've seen lately was that I ran into about a 6 foot white tip reef shark while snorkling on a different island of okinawa. I guess it was a little scary at the time, but he didn`t seem to care that I was there so it all worked out.
