About Me


I want to see in person, every place I've ever read about in a book!!


Friends would say that I am loyal, friendly and fun with a rather interesting perspective on life.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I don't really have a couch right now and I'm sharing an apartment in Beijing with 3 other people so we are kinda crowded but I would love to make some new friends, perhaps hike around China or even travel to other places near by.


So far I have not enjoyed any couch surfing experiences but I am looking forward to having many excellent adventures!


I'm interested in all kinds of things really! I enjoy reading and love to hike. I really love my daily workouts and enjoy yoga quite a bit too. I like to be outside but don't mind checking out cool stuff inside, i really enjoy a good museum. Pretty much game for anything.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently I'm reading a Clive Barker fantsy-type novel, I'll read just about anything but I'm not really fond of nonfiction. Movies, I enjoy just about everything from super stupid to dramatic, not a big fan of westerns, war movies or chick flicks. Music, love rock, metal, alternative and just about anything that isn't country or rap.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I don't know if its amazing but its certainly intersting (at least to me), I quit my life, packed it into storage and took off to China to teach English. I had almost no money to travel with, no place to live, don't know the language, didn't know a single person here!! Yet, here I am!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm a native English speaker and an elementary school teacher.
I would love to learn Chinese!!
