About Me


To be good at life.


Life is a curios thing.

A lot of my endeavors in life are driven by curiosity. Traveling is one of them.

I enjoy being in a new environment and having that initial fresh perspective where even the most mundane activities seem so fascinating.

I love the saying by Marcel Proust.. “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

My interests are quite eclectic. I often like learning new things for the sake of learning them. That's why I like to engage in a variety of learning projects.

Some of my interests include:

- Traveling
- Playing music (Guitar, Piano, Ukulele, Ocarina, Djembe drums)
- Martial arts (Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Nunchaku)
- Drawing
- Hiking and camping
- Snowboarding
- Language learning (Spanish, German, Khmer)
- Lucid dreaming and astral projection.


Live and learn.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Living out of my van for 8 weeks while touring the South Island of New Zealand. It was such a great feeling to have a moving home. I hope to do something similar again one day.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to box. I can show you a few Jiu Jitsu moves too (really this is just an excuse for me to practice some moves on you). I can jam with you on my guitar. I'm open to learning different things from people. I like the idea of having hidden skills that I can whip out of nowhere.
