Biography

Growing up as an Aboriginal man, with family from Cape Baron Island, Tasmania, I have developed immense respect for culture and tradition. This is why I’m excited to take my studies and passions to Japan because it’s rich with both. I will use the opportunity to immerse myself in Japanese culture by pursuing my interests in storytelling, Japanese language, and history.
I find comfort in having the ability to think about and process my ideas. This is why, aside from my studies, I run most days of the week and play the piano -  it’s an outlet that allows time to think without the distractions that are so prominent today.

I enjoy posting all my poems, stories, short-films, and software I make on my website and plan to use that as a medium to talk about my experience.

"The fact that I won't be visiting as a 'tourist' and instead I will be living there as a local is not something that I would ever have said I could experience."
