About Me

CURRENT MISSION

form my own electro/shoegaze band

ABOUT ME

I was a college student in New York City, and now I'm enjoying a year of drifting through East Asia and picking up Chinese in Taipei (as a quasi-student of 台灣大學). Have also made/will make stops in Hong Kong, mainland China, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Tibet (I hope) before returning to New York for a while to face another round of existential crises and cultural dislocation while hopefully having fun anyway and thinking about the future.

update: Tibet was closed, in New York again as of Nov. 2011

update: in Beijing again as of May 2012

PHILOSOPHY

Homo sum: humani nil a me alienum puto - "I am human, therefore nothing human is alien to me." - Terentius

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've hosted some couchsurfers in my New York apartment, and have surfed around mainland China a couple of times. Many great friends from around the world were introduced to me through CS groups.

Interests

International travel, listening to and creating music, learning languages, bicycles, very long train trips. Spicy Sichuan and Hunan food, conveyor-belt sushi restaurants, motorbiking, good books, green tea.
