About Me


1) PhD 2) Writing.


Avid eater and runner. A good day? A 21 km run up the mountains and soaking it up an at onsen. And lots of sushi.


when in absolute doubt...dance.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Nothing beats a backpack, a pair of good shoes, and getting lost.


-jogging while singing
-basketball and keeping up with the youngsters
-finding great eats every weekend
-spending time with close friends
-and a mean karaoke
