About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Making a life for myself and learning about my roots- Hong Kong, baby!

ABOUT ME

I'm an accountant currently on a bit of a "working holiday". After teaching business courses for a year in Beijing, and 2 years teaching English at a Hong Kong secondary school, I'm ready to rejoin the corporate world in Hong Kong.

PHILOSOPHY

Have fun, and mess up from time to time!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couch-surfed in Mainland China: met a couple cool teachers in Northeast China and was hosted by the most gracious host in the always-temperate Hainan Island!

Interests

Dodgeball, Beach Volleyball, - If I didn't have to work, I'd play, coach and breathe sport.

Yoga - to ensure I've got the flexibility and mental zen to conquer the world of sports.

Piano - nothing moves me like my own fingers on the keys.

Snowboarding - the perfect excuse to explore the mountains of the world!

Reading - When you're not travelling- it's the best way to gain other perspectives!

Music, Movies & Books

MUSIC
Michael Buble - perfect for a candle-lit dinner or a lazy Sunday in.

MOVIE
Forrest Gump - it's got it all: romance, comedy, adventure, action- and it even won an Oscar. Need I say more?

BOOKS
Give & Take - Couchsurfers are givers.

The Power of Habit - Some people don't have a passport! Now there's a habit that should be broken!

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Living and learning on Hollywood Boulevard, Los Angeles - exactly what it takes to be an attractive man.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can TEACH you the Japanese shirt-folding method.

I constantly try things and mess up and LEARN from these experiences.

I SHARE my gifts of being able to talk to anyone and my organization skills (great for travelling!) with all to enjoy!

What I Can Share With Hosts

Travel stories from Mainland China. My culture shock observations between the West and the East.

What I've learned in the world of social dynamics.

Countries I've Visited

China, England, France, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, United States, Viet Nam

Countries I've Lived In

Canada, China, Hong Kong, Ireland, United States
