About Me

*I am fully vaccinated*

Software engineer during the day and adventurer in life. I grew up in Taiwan, and my childhood has mostly been about studying, and gaming. I came to southern California in the US when I was 15 to study in high school. Moved up to Seattle for college, studying film and computer science. Now I'm working as a developer at a startup.

I have a broad interest in various things in life including, bouldering, yoga, meditation, gaming, EDM, movies, shows, startup stuff, enjoying a good time with friends. I think people are the most important part of life that we always need to cherish people around us and respect people that have different backgrounds or world views from us. It's only through conversation and works with each other we can make the world a better place.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Planning to travel alone and make friends on the way around the world. I find the idea of traveling to new places with locals and hosting other people pretty fascinating. I think is important that we broaden our perspectives and what better way to do it other than talking to people that come from all over the world?

Recently talk to my roommates about hosting and they both are open to the idea. I think is a great way to learn about the world and new perspectives.

Interests

I am into a lot of things, very open minded. My interest has broadened into film, music, tv shows, comedies, music, games that convey interesting stories behind them. I think they are all very interesting medium for communicating thoughtful ideas in different ways.

I also like to think about life and philosophy, and embracing ideas that are radically different from mine.

As a tech person, also very into new technologies and the startup scenes around the world.

Teach, Learn, Share

But more practically, I can share anything you want to know about Taiwan and software technology in general.
