About Me


Experience more to feel what I really need


I used to be an architecture student and had been working as an architect for almost two years. This year I quit my job and went to Seattle to learn carpentry.

Loving nature, loving to feel the passion and energy of a being throughout artwork, loving to find the greatness and mystery in the universe and human's mind.

Maybe a little bit quiet and shy sometimes (may be talktive, it depends :p) but friendly and always waiting to be shocked by new people and new things.


Emotional reflection is the most reliable thing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I couchsurfed in Taiwan for my first time. Had nice time with stunning people.

Sep. 2013-Feb. 2014, I was in Italy for my exchange programme. At the same time, I traveled and surfed for several times.

I found every host has their different styles of hosting, but all of which are so nice!


Mineral. Containers. Lists. Plants. Colorful things. Cloth. Lives. Handwork. Water melons. Sci-fi. Modern art. Antiques...

Walking, especially walking in the cold air during the night.

Drawing and writing. Just random.

Music, Movies, and Books

Sci-fi and any other if it tells a good story in a good way. Like:
- 2001:A Space Odyssey
- Trainspotting
- Detachment
- Brokeback Mountain
- 小武( Xiao Wu)

I like any book which tells a good story or has beautiful words and sentences or is full of wonderful imagination. And those of psychology, philosophy and natural science if they can explain the theories clearly and rigorously.

Enjoy different kinds of music if it fits the mood currently. Though I'm always a big fan of Britpop.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

The northern lights!!!
I can't describe them. Until now I still can't believe such kind of beauty really exist!

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you Chinese of course.
And if it's permitted, I can make some Chinese food!

I'd like to share everything I know with you. Having a nice talk always makes me feel satisfied.
