About Me


Post-30: the w(a)nder years.


Have lived in Japan for 8 years now, I thought it was only going to be a year, but I guess I like it here. My favourite things in the world are (in no particular order): Live music Film cameras Cafes My husband Ramen Naoshima Traveling My parents Hats Driving


Recently, I've decided that getting angry is ok, but staying angry is a total waste of time and energy. Don't be angry!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Not a lot, lately....I'm working on it! Formally the Nagoya group admin. Threw cool parties 'n stuff.


Started in Chicago as a surfer, continued to host in Nagoya and Sapporo. Met some really fabulous people from very interesting places with really fascinating stories.


Taking photos, listening to and playing music, watching bad Japanese quiz shows, fooding, checking out gigs.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

It's pretty lame, but summertime sunsets in Tasmania are guaranteed to make me wonder why I don't live there anymore. Always amazing.
