About Me


Live abroad and travel


I have a company in Japan. We do video production. I also have this YouTube channel about my life here, so you can learn a thing or two about me from the channel - www.youtube.com/theuwagapies

The most valuable thing to me is to meet new people and form connections.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host and like to be hosted!


Couchsurfing makes the traveling experience so much better. You can return to a warm home after visiting a city and it really enriches the experience.


Running, reading, movies, learning about other cultures, video production, storytelling :)

Music, Movies, and Books

Books- A Prayer for Owen Meany, Harry Potter Series (I can't help it, I grew up on them)

Movies - Blow, Love Me if you Dare, X-men Series, State of Play, City of God

Music- EVERYTHING, I don't know where to start. It's very random and eclectic. So here are just a few bands- Passion Pit, AC/DC, Shaggy, Shakira, The Shins, Kings of Leon, WIlco. I can find something enjoyable in almost every tune.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

My most amazing experience so far has been studying abroad in Rio de Janeiro and it has inspired me to travel more and meet people of all different cultures. Afterward, I backpacked a bit through South America and had a chance to ride a bike down the death road. I loved this experience.

Teach, Learn, Share

Stress less- If you can fix it, then fix it. If you can't, then forget about it.

Meeting people and traveling are kind of similar - it's good to have a purpose, but having a strict agenda can take away an opportunity for a great lesson.
