About Me


To understand my part in the world.


I enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places with, and sharing and hearing interesting stories. I am also a global citizen who loves to travel and meet people from around the world because with every space I explore, and every person I meet, the world becomes a little bit smaller.


I believe the good conversations that we have with each other will become the building blocks of a truly equitable global society.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I met great people when I was traveling through England. I really fell in love with this site during that trip.


I have a lot of interests: Currently, my main activities are rebuilding old bicycles, kendo, and rock climbing. I also enjoy trying new foods, cooking, watching movies, hiking and going to the beach.
