About Me

I’m a full time masters student after teaching in China for like 5 years. Basically, I tought Chinese students how to be Canadian ehhhhhhh!! I am Canadian so i do apologize a lot so Im sorry, i dont pronounce about like "a boot", or i dont live in an igloo at home but i do love my maple syrup and poutine is a fantastic meal that can be enjoyed 24/7. Its awesome!! :) Im a huge sports fan and occasionally play some here. Love trying out new random restaurants but then again everything is always so random
Big fan of engaging in meaningful conversations that can range from how to make the world a better place to who is the best soccer player of all time to which modern family character i connect with best!!!! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Music, Movies, and Books

I have such a wide range of taste in music and my playlist is filled with all kinds of genres from 90s dance music to latin music to gangster rap!! haha so chances are we have some similar taste in music.
Books: im more into some non-fiction books these days such as autobiographies and whatnot, that or Paulo Coelo.That dude could really tell a story.
Movies: Stupid comedy movies such as the "classics": old school, dodgeball, anchorman, wedding crashers

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Well we have all seen so many amazing things all the time but i guess some life highlights would be :
-Studied abroad in Amsterdam
-Drove a "PEACE BUS" across Canada thanks to this amazing program.
-played Adam in my elementary school play about Adam and Eve.
