About Me


My mission is to live life like there's no tomorrow! Try to do something fun, different, or something that I enjoy everyday. Also looking for new projects so i can travel ;) Here is a video I did in Cambodia funded by CNN


Hope all is well!! I am very easy going, love to meet new people. I have visited 43 countries so far, and is always on the look out for the next country. I look forward to getting involved with Film/TV/News work, directing, editing, acting and filming projects in Tokyo or abroad. Here is one of my recent works I did funded by CNN

I use Facebook more so please feel free to add me.

All the best enjoy your travels!



There's a movie, called pay it forward please watch this. If you help someone out, a great deal, great things will happen all around us.

Do not have fear of making mistakes, but feel fear of doing nothing.

If you take care of me, I will take care of you.

If you are not making someones life better your wasting your time.

You might get hit by a train/car/whatever tomorrow so live life today as if its your last.

We are here to add what we can to life, not to get what we can from life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I sometimes let people, crash at my place in japan. I meet people for tea, lunch, or beer. We usually always meet a couple or a bunch of times depending on how busy they are during the trip. I take people round, and they tend to really like to hang out with me, because they see the city from the local prospective. And I usually take them to places where guide books don't take you.


A guy who I didn't know at all asked me if he can CS at my pad. He then stayed for a few weeks, and told me about CS. It was so great to have him at my place. He taught me how to cook Mexican food, taught me a lot of stuff. And I also taught him a lot of things, and introduced him to my family, and friends. I then visited him when I was in Mexico. Now we are bros from a different mother. And since then people have CS at my place often, and I have CS while traveling.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

So many things!! Sky diving, bungy jumping, cliff diving. I have seen beautiful mountains, beaches. Gone on the Peace boat. But I have also seen the rough areas. In the slum of Brazil, kids around 13 years old would carry guns bigger then themselves an m16. It made me realize how these kids have nothing to lose, and made me really appreciate life. But at the same time I spoke to them, and they were really nice, so made me see the best in the so called "worst places"
