Curious Gaijin

I’ve beaten some fairly serious odds in my life. But I’m still alive and I live in Japan. I’m an Expat. Gaijin. Outsider. And happily, so. Actually, I’ve felt like an outsider most of my life. That is the main backdrop against which I look at my history and the world these days.

Our planet has become a rather stressful and confusing to inhabit, so I want to share elements of my life that, hopefully, will spread some positivity and good vibes. There’s a lot more to me than being the Curious Gaijin. I have a long background in a range of creative arts, including musical theatre, gigging with bands, acting, and filmmaking – actually managed to persuade a university in Australia to give me a master’s degree for that last one! :)

I’m putting all of my professional experiences into what you see on the pages of this website and my various social media channels. The Curious Gaijin is all about doing life in my little corner of the world; a country-sea resort spot on Japan’s Chiba coast.
