About Me


I've just moved to the city. I teach weekdays 8:30-5 & now I'm trying to find a way to get out of this city on weekends. I love being outside, I'd prefer to ride my bike than drive and camp than sleep inside.

I'm kind of OCD but I try to be relaxed, my friends would say I'm very OCD but they love me anyway because they are my friends. I'll say straight up my mum thinks I'm neurotic. I talk too much when I'm nervous. I'm terrified of heights, so I started jumping off rocks and I went paragliding. While living in a rural location I was learning the difference between solitude and loneliness, now that I'm living in Tokyo I'm trying to learn how to not be lonely amongst all of these people.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Step one: move to an area where you don't know anyone or anything about it.
Step two: click on your own profile then hit "show nearby couches".
Step three: use couch surfing to make new friends.
This method is known as "how to make new friends in a new area without having social skills or having to endure that awkward moment where you try to strike up a conversation with a stranger ..."

I've surfed, I've hoasted, I've put in events ...
For now I guess I'm just using it to meet new people.


Active: rafting, kayaking, diving, camping, hiking, climbing, snowboarding.
