About Me

I am an easy going, open-minded person who gets along with almost everybody and respects everyone's ideas even if they differ from mine. I love to laugh about anything including at myself and enjoy a good conversation about almost everything. I can be outgoing or reserved depending on my mood, but am usually reserved -- not shy. I believe that being content in one's life is of the utmost importance.

PHILOSOPHY

I believe that everyone should be enjoying their life and if they aren't, they should change something to make it so. Life is about experiences and growth and if you're walking through it like a zombie, what is the point in living. Changing the world for the better starts with the one thing that you can control: yourself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

To meet new, interesting people and to able to be shown a location through the local's eyes, which is always a preferable way of tourism. When I'm living in a big enough apartment, I hope to do the same for other people.

Interests

I love movies, music, books, photography, traveling, being in nature, and meditation. Observing myself and always continuing to grow as a person is important for me. When I go traveling, the things that I'm interested in most are architecture, history, culture, food, and the people of the country. One of my hobbies is writing about food in Taipei in order to assist other people's culinary wants and desires; my Taipei restaurant review website: www.jaysuneatstaipei.com

Music, Movies, and Books

I have a very wide range of musical likes. I love all types of movies: mainstream, independent, foreign, etc., and have probably seen way too many. I like books that aren't among the major cliche genres and that have something unique to or real to share.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was a monk for nine days in the northern mountains of Thailand. I scuba dived in The Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Every place or thing can be considered amazing with the right mindset.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not an expert at most things, but have a wealth of knowledge and experience spread out over many subjects. I'm a lot smarter than I look -- haha.
