Home Country - Canada
I’ve been a certified gymnastics coach and personal trainer for seven years, as well as training as a circus acrobat for two years now! Movement is probably my greatest passion, and I have made it my career to teach and learn how to move efficiently and effectively to others. I enjoy both the elegance of gymnastics and the artistic creativity that circus allows, and I would love to chat about my training, routines, or the performance life with you!
I attended school for art and illustration. I still make my own work to display for companies or galleries! If art is your strong suit, or you would like to discuss and share the processes of making your own work, I’d love to chat about it!
I have a strong interest in current as well as past fashion trends! Japan is a huge trend-setting country when it comes to those things, so I would love to discuss those with you if you’re interested!
Being a young person in this day and age, I enjoy being on social media. Being inspired by posts from others, and inspiring through my own presence online is something that we were not able to do a few years ago! Although it can be addicting, it’s become a huge part of our lives! I’d love to discuss this topic with you if you are interested!
This is just simply an interest of mine. I love love love living as a minimalist, and I choose not to own too many things. I know many Japanese people have a similar waste-free mindset as myself, and chatting about how to get rid of things, clean up, or even live with only the necessities is a topic I’d love to explore with you!
AND MUCH MORE…
Hello everyone! I am a native speaker of English from Toronto, Canada. I have worked as a Gymnastic and Acrobatics coach since 2013, so I am very used to speaking with, and coaching many different kinds of people! For the past few years I have also been training as a Circus Acrobat! I lived and worked in Yokohama, Japan for all of 2018, so I have come to love and appreciate the Japanese culture and way of life. I can also hold a conversation in Japanese! I really enjoy fashion, photography and ballet. I hope you enjoy your time learning with me!
I AM A CIRCUS ARTIST
When I was younger, I was inspired by a very specific circus performance which would jump-start my love of circus. I was already a gymnast and thought that I was pretty strong for my age. But after watching this display of beauty and strength from a girl also my age, I knew that I needed to work very hard to get to her level. I am still not quite at her extremely high skill level, but this girl was a big influence on me, and I can gladly say that I’ve been able to speak with her, after many years and express my thankfulness to her! This is the exact performance that made me want to do what I currently do, and I hope you can see what I saw in it as a child!
This is a performance that I saw many years later, and it has become my FAVORITE act I’ve ever personally had the enjoyment of watching. I’d like to share it with you! It begins at 51:40
Please have a look!
