About Me


To meet people all over the world :) and dance around the world


I`m currently working in Japan Nagasaki city and am hosting

I love to travel. I've traveled to Australia, Japan, South Korea and Thailand,
and would love to travel to Europe and Latin America.

I dance Ceroc dance also known as Modern Jive.
I love to try new things and meet new people.

I love to learn new languages and I am a really friendly person.


I live my life for the experiences of meeting new and wondrous people that I meet all the time.

Traveling and sharing new expereiences with people continuously changes us and allows us to spiritually grow.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I host in Nagasaki and love showing travelers the sights and what there is to do
I am happy to host and open my house to travelers.

If you are new to couch surfing and have no references please get one from a friend. It's not essential but it is nice to read a reference.

Again if you are new to couch surfing here are some suggestions to show your appreciation for staying.(Although bear in mind these are not necessary)
Lots of couch surfers bring gifts that I put up on the wall
or they pay for the dinner that we have together
or they make dinner
just something like that to show their appreciation for staying at my house :-)

I can take you to the famous local hot pools.

Or I can take you to the local "sake" bar


I have couch surfed in Australia and Japan.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Traveled around Japan and have seen all it's interesting old culture and it's amazing high technology.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can speak Japanese
I can teach and dance Ceroc

I've lived in Japan for a decent amount of years so if you have any questions about Japans samurai's or ninja's or rise and fall or it's economy or anything about Japan I can usually answer it but not always of course.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can teach you some basic Japanese phrases.

And I'm very passionate about teaching CEROC DANCE if you are interested in learning.
