Hello, my name is Tim Tamashiro.

I’m the author of the non-fiction book How To Ikigai. I’m also a speaker, singer and seeker of wonder.

You might know me the former host of a nightly national jazz program Tonic on CBC Radio 2. At the end of a decade as a radio host I felt the desire to pursue deeper meaning in my life's work. So I left CBC to study positive psychology and Ikigai (life's worth) with a year long "Ikigap year".

I’ve learned that my personal Ikigai is "to delight". I now offer keynotes, workshops and music performances to share my Ikigai.
