About Me


To visit every continent at least once. Oceania lacking.

Music, Movies, and Books

Dostoevsky, hands down favorite author. But I tend to read anything I can get my hands on.
Indie rock, classical music.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Visiting the Pyramids... and Ginkakuji

Teach, Learn, Share

I love to teach languages, having been an English teacher a few years ago.

I also taught Chemical and Petroleum Engineering, but that seems less practical here.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Canada, Egypt, France, Japan, Russian Federation, United Kingdom, United States

Countries I’ve Lived In

Brazil, France, Japan, United States
