Coordinator - Animation - 5th summer
Odyssey is the name for a big adventure filled with magic and incredibly awesome events: it is exactly what I wish we will live together this summer at the camp! Odyssey is also the title of one of the first theatre plays ever written: you can guess that I indeed LOVE drama! I am currently studying Drama Education to become a Elementary/High School drama teacher: I found a way to mix my love for the arts and my love for children in one amazing career project! First you have to know that I love theatre just as much as Japanese people love rice: a lot! I also love to write, to play music, to enjoy a good movie, to visit art galleries, to take pictures and to read at least 2 books at a time. I also happen to work part-time an Tour Director for scholars groups visiting cities in North America: it is through that job that I discovered how much I get along with children and teenagers! You will witness yourself this summer that I am indeed a FUN-TASTIC person!

One day, a guitar pick decided to strum a stratocaster's strings. The sound that came out sounded like this: "Djent!"

He completed his DES with a concentration in percussion as has worked in the field of music ever since. He wanted to communicate his love for music so much to the world that he decided to become a camp counsellor at Garage Band Camp.
