About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be present, take time for people, understand the bad but see the good.

ABOUT ME

Silly goose. Straight shooter. Extremely athletic and outdoorsy (in my dreams). I'm the kind of person that doesn't need to read the whole menu to order.

PHILOSOPHY

Human connections are invaluable.
Slow down for other people.
Life's a dance, you learn as you go, sometimes you lead, sometimes you follow.
The more I learn, the more I know what I don't know, and that's okay.
Experience, reflect, grow.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meeting people, being friendly and extremely appreciative when someone hosts me.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I've couch surfed two times, both at the same apartment, with three cs hosts, and had a wonderful time both times. The hosts were super welcoming and made my first days in Beijing absolutely wonderful.

Also, I've been to a couch surfing meet-up, also in Beijing. The room was filled with people from all over the globe. Conversation was naturally colorful.

Interests

Meditation. Rock climbing. Social dancing (salsa, bachata, or anything in the park with older Chinese folk). Photography (trying improve). Biking. Movies. Desserts. Spanish. Talking to strangers. Making new friends. Newly collecting old crafts (especially hand sewed things) and pottery (bowls, cups).

Music, Movies & Books

Paul Simon, Julieta Venegas, Joni Mitchell.
A Thousand Splendid Suns, Mountains Beyond Mountains, Slaughterhouse Five.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Belizean moon on Caribbean waters.
