Multi-cultural Community Builder. Wellness, Fitness & Benefits Specialist.

Born and raised in Canada, I lived in Peru, studied in China and Taiwan, and worked in South Korea before moving to Japan in 2014. Past projects include founding CoFit Movement, a corporate fitness trainer dispatch company in Tokyo; acting as Director of Community at SOGO Fitness; founding Tokyo Trilinguals; and co-producing Radio Taiso X, a remixed fitness music video. I am currently pursing a masters in psychology while working in corporate wellness & benefits in the tech industry, and strive to contribute at the intersection of personal, social, societal and environmental well-being.

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
