About Me

Since 2008 I've been (kind of) working my way around the world. I've just quit my last job in Brazil and, after volunteering for a month in an ecovillage, I am heading now to Japan to live for some time in a Zen Buddhist temple which is also a self-sufficient farm. First stop is London (March 2016) and then the Trans-Siberian railway (April 2016) on the way to Japan.
