About Me


Just moved to Tokyo.


Just moved to Tokyo to teach.
Now am flying solo.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Meet the odd surfer in Tokyo, but it's pretty quiet at the moment due to studious obligations.


Re-engaged as of now.


Music, films, books, more books. Playing the guitar (but only in private as therapy). Occasional writing.
