About Me


Learn,Live, Enjoy & Capture :)


I'm a professional photographer and also work as a Cafe manager in downtown Boston. I'm passionate about Travelling and Photography . I hope I can publish a photo book about the cultures in the World one day.
You can check my photo work at


When people see somethings as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't posses,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


As soon as I learnt about this website ,I got so excited and could not wait to get into it... I hope I can learn more about the experiences people had and one day I can help people with what I have learnt.
