About Me

I'm David and I've just finished up 3 years teaching English in Taiwan. I'm getting ready to move to Kiel, Germany to study my master's but first I'm going home for a while. I won't be able to host anyone for the time being but hope I can do so again once I get my new place in Kiel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have been active on Couchsurfing for a couple years now and it has really been great. It's a wonderful way to meet new people from around the world, explore the world, and share places you love. I've made lots of interesting friends in the Couchsurfing community here in Kaohsiung and from all around the world. Recently I've started to help organize the weekly Couchsurfing meetup here in Kaohsiung.


I enjoy hiking, cycling, and travelling. Some of my less common hobbies (which I have yet to actually practice in Taiwan) include amateur paleontology and field herpetology (looking for fossils, reptiles, and amphibians).

Music, Movies, and Books

I like lots of movies music and books so I'm not sure where to end. I'll just list a few.

Movies: V For Vendetta, The Goonies, Kickass, The Princess Bride, Kill Bill, Slumdog Millionaire, Argo, Moonrise Kingdom, etc.

Music: Mostly older stuff especially the Beatles. Generally open to most things.

Books: Harry Potter, Crime and Punishment, To Kill a Mockingbird, Ender's Game, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I am always most amazed by places I go in nature. Some of these beautiful places include Niagara Falls, Ha Long Bay, and the clouds rolling down Lantau Peak on a crystal clear morning in Hong Kong, and watching the sunrise at Yushan, the tallest mountain in Taiwan.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm currently working as an English teacher at a cram school. If you want to improve your English I'ld be happy to help. I have been taking classes in Mandarin for about a year. My ability is still far from great but improving. Practice is always good.

What I Can Share with Hosts

If you want I'd be happy to cook for you. I'm also able to help those looking to improve their English or just generally hang out and chat.
