About Me

Hello! I'm a half Taiwanese, half Italian software engineer (and part time German-English translator), who used to travel around the world. Then 2020 kicked in and foiled my plans. Still, i'm lucky i can at least work from home (home is currently Genova, in Italy)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Looking for travel buddies with whom to explore uncharted lands, visit castles or listen to concerts


  • piano
  • snorkeling
  • mathematics
  • mythology
  • football
  • programming

Music, Movies, and Books

classical music (Chopin, Schubert, Schumann), hard rock (U.K.J.), David Lynch movies, Terry Pratchett and Douglas Adams books

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Managed to solve correctly all 18 quizzes of the Italian math finals hosted by Bocconi (2021)... but unfortunately there were no prizes, since the competition was held online and the university had no way to tell the players didn't cheat.

Won a photo contest launched by German tourism (2020)... would have won an interrail pass, but didn't open the winning email thinking it was spam. Opened the second email instead, that told me it was too late to claim the prize.

Overall, lucky but not too lucky!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can give you some hiking suggestions, if you explore Italy, Germany or Switzerland. I would like to get better at the piano. And we could try sharing a conversation in English, Italian, Chinese or German.
