About Me


For me: see the world and live life to the max! For others: to allow them to have a great time in a great city!


Well, about me, that is a long story...we can talk in person! But in general, I am seizing the day! I am living and working in Tokyo, and traveling when I can. This spring I might go to Indonesia and Malaysia. Maybe China? I want to see more of Asia.


I don't why I live but most of the time I enjoy it. While I am young, I am making the most of my life and learning what I can. I can settle down later.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offer sometimes shelter, but always fun, good food, etc. I try to spread happiness and knowledge where I can, and I enjoy building good relationships. At the moment I am only traveling a little bit and would sometimes like to surf some couches. I might be able to host once in a while.


I have taken a year break from couch surfing and traveling in general. But now I'm back! I went to Malaysia and Thailand this past winter and it was great. Although I didnt surf with anyone, I met cool people. Recently I have hosted or met up with some interesting people here in Tokyo. In the past it was great hosting people. Between my roommates and I, I think we hosted around 40 people in a matter of weeks while in Madrid! Interesting people and great times!! And I have had nice experiences staying at other houses around the world too =)


I like almost everything- I dont really feel like writing everything now...but ok just a hint:
eating, talking, friends, helping people, playing games, drinking, dancing, karaoke, sex (sorry, but I am honest!), adventure, planning events, teaching, current events, traveling, cooking, watching movies, going to concerts, yakiniku, the night, monsters, europe, food (I already said that with eating and cooking!), the future, the past, the present, etc. etc. etc...
