About Me


Traveling across Japan by way of my bike and the kindness of people


I am a 3rd year Physics student currently traveling through Japan in between semesters. I have been working hard to learn the Japanese language lately to help me during my travels across the country.


I learn more about myself every day through meeting the amazing people around me.


I enjoy biking, games, movies, music, and pretty much what everyone else enjoys.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Upon arriving to Arashiyama, the wind was blowing fiercely and the snow falling hard. My friends and I climbed up the mountain by way of the stairs to the Monkey Park and, as I looked up, I could see the snow in turmoil overhead; currents of countless flakes wrapping around each other, twisting and playing. However, as I looked to my side, between the mountain's folds, the snow was not within reach of any wind, and drifted slowly and peacefully down past me.

Then we made it to the top, and saw monkeys.

Teach, Learn, Share

I would love to one day teach english in Japan. Also, I plan on teaching Physics in the future whether as a college professor or a High School Teacher.
