About Me


Explore, adventure, evolve, love, play, grow, live healthy and enjoy life.


PLEASE READ THROUGH THE 'MY HOME' SECTION BEFORE REQUESTING TO STAY WITH ME. THANK YOU. I love to be outdoors. I work with adults (and teens a bit) regarding sexual empowerment and education, and this is my calling. I've decided to go back to school for a Masters in Human Sexuality Studies (prob in 2017). In the meantime I LOVE my job as a teacher at an elementary charter school, helping in an awesome program for home-schoolers. Recently I started a group for teens in the community, to give the kids fun stuff to do. I love delicious, fresh, healthy food. I'm passionate about living in harmony with the earth. I'm also pretty connected to the children's circus near me.

Here's a few links to a few people in the field of sexual education/research who I admire:


I live my life the way I believe in as best as I can. I live gently upon the earth. I'm really open-minded. I'm definitely a child of the Tao. I'm somewhat hedonistic, and in that, enjoy moderation. Being playful and light-hearted is healthy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Host and surf


I've met some rad people! I love fellow travelers.


Making music with people, dancing, being outdoors. Stargazing, finding constellations, planets. Sust-'aina-bility ('aina means land in Hawaiian). Meditation. I care about the kids in my community, and look out for them. My own continued growth and evolution is important to me. I also am a student and teacher of the sensual arts. This is a passion of mine.

Music, Movies, and Books

I LOVE MUSIC!! Esp nowadays conscious hip-hop and rap. I would love to be more educated on this, so please feel free to introduce me to good stuff. Jazz fascinates me... I love most kinds of music. I'm a sucker for piano, and I love stringed instruments, especially ones that you pluck or strike like mandolin, banjo, hammer dulcimer. A lot of my friends are DJs so I enjoy hearing their stuff...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Going out to see the flowing lava, or swimming with wild dolphins... these activities are always very amazing and humbling. And of course standing under a bunch of cherry trees in Japan when the blossoms are going off, and the wind blows, and they fall all around like giant snowflakes...

Teach, Learn, Share

I love learning about other places and cultures. People come to me a lot for advice and support in the sexual realm, and I love supporting people in this way. I also love learning and teaching about the Japanese language and culture. And sharing music always...

What I Can Share with Hosts

Through conversation, intuition, etc., I often help people explore/enhance their sexuality/sensuality. Also, if there's time, I'm happy to share with people some things I know about Taoist/Tantric/other sexual practices. (For example, through breath, awareness, etc. Also, e.g., I created a 2.5 day workshop called 'Sensual Communication ~ For Women.')
