About Me

CURRENT MISSION

choose a passion. save lives.

ABOUT ME

I am constantly running off into my imaginations and challenging what I see in real life. I love knowledge. I love it best when it surprises you. I like to push boundaries and to find the beauty in the grotesque. I want to experience otherworldly things.

I believe you can learn a lot from a person's musical tastes. I listen to as much as possible: techno (Benassi, Tiesto), Bach and Chopin and anything cello, hip hop and rap (Timbaland, Justin Timberlake, Leona Lewis), foreign music (Utada Hikaru, Nobuo Uematsu).

PHILOSOPHY

I look for beauty in everything, even the most painful.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I think CouchSurfing is such a great, feel-good, connect-to-people idea. It's such a warm community, and it really relies on the innate goodness of people.

My friends have said many great things about it, how open and friendly the hosts are, so I believe I will have a great experience.

When I am settled into an apartment, I would be happy to host travelers and show them around New York City!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I love it! It's kind of thrilling to just meet strangers and connect on the whole travel-bug-level. I've only surfed so far and would totally do it again. I'm looking forward to hosting too.

Interests

I love beautiful, fantastical things. Yoshitaka Amano art, Miyazaki movies, origami, Final Fantasy series...

I also really like Volkswagen vans for no particular reason. Not just the cute rounded square ones of the 60s, but the clunky and awkward box ones too.

I'm a fan of PostSecret: www.postsecret.com

Love: Yoga yoga yoga yoga yoga haha

I'm interested in meeting bright people--not bright as in smart--but bright as in glowing and happy and open. :)

Music, Movies & Books

a smattering of favorites: A World Without Thieves, Princess Mononoke, Bach Chaconne, Elgar Cello Concerto, The Unbearable Lightness of Being by Milan Kundera, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

One Amazing Thing I've Done

This isn't rare but...

One of the hallmarks of being a medical student is studying human anatomy via cadavres. It's a trying experience. It's fascinating and grotesque at the same time because you learn to appreciate the human body so much, but then you realize what exactly you're doing and it doesn't seem to magical anymore. I can talk so much about it, but I don't think it would be appropriate.

Teach, Learn, Share

I could teach you all sorts of interesting things about the human body, about evolution, about human development.

I would like to learn how to play cello.

I want to share origami works. I would love to teach you some and learn some from you too.
