About Me


Learn to use Chinese


I love to read about people's lives, their cultures, and psychology. Photography allows me to capture people's spirits and allows me to capture a bit of their personalities.


Enjoy cooking and sharing a good meal, a little wine or coffee, and engaging in pleasant conversations with loving friends. I also love learning about new cultures.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have not tried couch surfing yet, look forward to trying it as soon as I can get out.


Some experience with Mennonite Your Way - Similar program of sharing living space. Most of my experience has been meeting up with friends in other parts of the world.


Photography, gardening, camping and being outdoors. I especially enjoy meeting people and exploring new cultures.
