About Me

Hi, i love music and cloudwatching. and cooking. and photography. i especially enjoy taking picture of children, old people and clouds. I am quite busy with work these days but I still try to host when I can.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I have traveled a bit, and I know how helpful a couch can be for a traveler. especially if the host is nice, interesting and easygoing. I stumbled upon this site (about 8 years ago) and have been hosting and surfing ever since.


Meditation, food, music, good conversations, people with big and warm hearts, my dog and my cat.

Music, Movies, and Books

the function of music is to release us from the tyranny of conscious thought.

Books: Anything by Chuck Palahniuk, Charles Bukowski, Kurt Vonnegut
Music: Damien Rice, Ben Harper, Ray LaMontagne, Bon Iver, The Girls, also, there are a lot of amazingly talented local artists in Beijing that nobody's heard of, perhaps I can take you to local gigs if there is one worth going.
Movies: I generally don't like movies that are too artsy or movies that are too commercial, I particularly enjoy movies that raise questions and make me think.
