Hello! My name is Travis and I'm from the United States. I've been living in Japan since October of 2012, and I love sushi! Life is all about the relationships we build and the love we send into the world around us. I am an easy-going guy who loves to relax and enjoy the simple things in life. My favorite movies include: Forrest Gump, The Lion King, and Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?.
I am originally from the state of Oklahoma, born and raised in a small city that most people have never heard of. I love living in Japan, but sometimes yearn for the peace and space of countryside living. I have tried to build my apartment in such a way that reflects the balance between the connected city life and the serenity of the countryside.
I came to Japan seeking adventure. One of my favorite books is Walden, by Henry David Thoreau, and Japan is my Walden pond. Every man, at some point in their life, longs for the wind of adventure to open their sails. I came to Japan to see how far my boat could take me. I work as an English conversation teacher for kids and adults, and enjoy learning new things myself.
If you ever have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! I love helping people out and solving problems. I look forward to meeting you and sharing a roof!
All the best!
