Could you tell us about your family? Did your parents raise you in a typical “Japanese” way?My mother is half Japanese half Greek and my father is full Japanese but I don’t have a deep connection with Greece. Yeah, they raised me with Japanese standards, Japanese mentality and all. But I have an international mind since I have been to international school in Japan since 1st grade so I can be flexible.

Relationships status: In a relationship

Hobbies: Working out, boxing, MMA (mixed martial arts), wrestling

Tell us more about working out. How do you usually train?I mostly do cardio workouts. The main purpose of my work out is to keep myself in shape. My work out mainly focuses on building functional muscles, or in another words, useful muscles.

Could you share some secrets about keeping fit?Train hard. That’s it.

What has been your favorite memory since coming to Waseda?A trip to Izu (伊豆) with my buddies.

Do you have a favorite spot on campus?I don’t have any.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?I have no clue.

What are your plans for summer break?I don’t really have any plans but I will be leaving for Ohio for my study abroad this August. I guess I’m just going to continue to work, train, and most importantly, spend time with my favorite people before I leave Japan.
