Tim Tamashiro is an “Ikigai explorer”. Ikigai is the Japanese map for living a meaningful life. The map is deceivingly simple: do what you love, do what you’re good at, do what the world needs and earn a living from your gifts. Tim’s gifts include storytelling, singing and friend making. Tim is the former CBC Radio host of the nightly jazz program Tonic. He is the recipient of an honorary bachelor degree from Red Deer College.
