About Me

Hello! I'm Bryan. I'm originally from Taipei, Taiwan, but I moved to Missouri several months ago to pursue a Master's degree after working for three years. I consider myself easy to talk to; I'm into anything from literature (I studied English literature in college), arts to politics.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet local people and get to know their stories.


  • singing
  • eating out
  • watching movies
  • drinking coffee

Music, Movies, and Books

Taiwanese/Japanese band music (Fuji Rock on my list bucket list)
Movies: The Shawshank Redemption, Frances Ha, Call Me by Your Name.
Books: A Thousand Splendid Suns, After Dark.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

- Two-week summer trip to Lanyu (also: Orchid Island, off the eastern coast of Taiwan) for an education camp for aboriginal kids, and was stranded on the island for a typhoon, which was later proved to be a blessing in disguise.
- One-month summer (demystification) trip to Tokyo. First time traveling abroad as a backpacker.
- Studying as an exchange student in Prague, Czech Republic.

Teach, Learn, Share
