About

 
A tramp, a gentleman, a poet, a dreamer, a lonely fellow, always hopeful of romance and adventure.
— Charlie Chaplin
 

Joseph Gummer (Dec 6, 1988) was born a city boy… in the less than picturesque Hartford, Connecticut, USA. The next twenty years saw moves to the suburbs (Canton, CT), then to Germany on an exchange year abroad with the Rotary International, up to Boston for university, and then out again to Japan on a study abroad.

Since graduation in 2011, Joe has been pursuing the experiences and opportunities that the time in university didn't allow for. In the fall of 2012 the beckoning call of life abroad was too much to resist and the promise of the entire world beyond the familiar comfort of home prompted him to pack his things and move to Munich. While studying up on his German language skills, he juggled two separate jobs as a bicycle mechanic and a barista in a popular café in the city center. 

Moving on from Germany, Joe returned to Japan in the summer of 2013 and now lives in Tokyo. Living out his creative passions, he works in the field of advertising and marketing and entertains entrepreneurial endeavors in his free time. With the ultimate goal of eventually establishing his own company, he is always on the lookout for like-minded thinkers and stimulating conversation.
