About Me


Eat as much delicious food as possible while soaking up all the cultural history I can!


I think an apt description of myself would certainly be akin to that of simultaneous scholar and goof ball. The pursuit of knowledge has always been something that's driven me, and I can certainly say that I owe much of my curiosity for the wider world to the years of knowledge I've gleaned from teachers, books, other travelers, and good vibes--of which there are plenty here in Austin. :)


"I am, I am, I am."

I live my life because I am part of this beautiful planet earth, and I see no reason to do otherwise. There is so much to be seen, done, and lived that it would be ludicrous to forfeit my curiosities and yearning for knowledge in order to stay in one place, perpetually afraid of change. On a less serious note, we're here--so let's make the most of it!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Unfortunately, I won't be able to host until next August because I will be out of the country. Once I'm back, my couch/futon is a free for all!


Poetry, writing, traveling, learning about new cultures, learning languages, kayaking, ethnic foods, exploring cities, going to shows, hiking, sailing, yoga.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I can stand on my head and eat chocolate with the best of them!

Teach, Learn, Share

If interested, let's go to yoga! Or I can teach you beginner's Cantonese or Danish. Or we can just grab a cup of joe and chat about your/my beautiful city and exchange travel stories. :)

What I Can Share with Hosts

I am a goof ball at heart, and I love to laugh. If anything, I hope to bring a little bit of laughter, good humor, and all around good vibes into your home!
