About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I don't know, change the world? - That's certainly a big mission in life.

ABOUT ME

I love biking. The end.
What else? I guess I'm also very down to earth, adventurous, exploratory, spontaneous, and mellow at times.

Growing up in NYC, I find myself yearning for the pursuit of knowledge and culture. I try to make the most out of everything.
I'm not a crazy evil person! But I do enjoy the mischievous harmless fun. And the more reserved fun of cultural and nature exploring. :)
Btw, I'm also trying to save the world, but that's currently on hold. :b

Other than that, feel free to ask me anything. Seriously, just ask me random, absurd questions.

PHILOSOPHY

Accept and work with it.

Harder, better, faster, stronger
^yea, Daft Punk!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Not really sure how I would be able to 'build this community' of couchsurfing more than what it already is. But I certainly would love to maintain this friendly and open environment that it has become. I would also love to meet new FRIENDLY strangers around the globe and share a small experience with them.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I surfed in San Francisco [a lot of fun] and hosted in Buffalo [pretty cool] but I think one of the more unique experience is from a very novel request I could not turn down - hosting a portion of the Ultimate Frisbee team for the Division III Nationals Championships in Buffalo...awesome!
I surfed for a week in a town nearby Barcelona's city center: Vilanova i la Geltru. Beautiful and peaceful place.

More to come..

Interests

Biking. Architecture, urban design, street art, interactive art, dancing with no formal skills, dérives, people watching, exploring, biking in the rain, Dragon Boating (this is a water sport), etcetera..

Music, Movies & Books

I appreciate all sorts of music. Even my friend's screamo. But my fall back is mostly indie rock, electronica, alternative, and I do like the old school rap music... I'm diverse.
For a feel of things, I'm currently listening to: RHCP, Arctic Monkeys, Mumford and Sons, Modest Mouse, El Ten Eleven, Album Leaf, Ratatat...and so much more.
For movies, I'm not the at all savvy in recent movies, but I definitely love the movie "The Room". Please, strike up a conversation with me if you've watched it!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Paddled in a torrential storm, type: Black Storm. In Hong Kong, to prepare for a dragon boat race. I also don't know how to swim.
Biked a few hours just to watch the sunrise at Niagara Falls. Pictures and words will do no justice to capture the experience.

But that's something random that comes to mind.
So, give me a minute to get there...

Teach, Learn, Share

Teach, let me Learn, and Share me your city! =D
I also want to try some good local beer.
