About Me

CURRENT MISSION

I want to learn at least 8 languages, visit every continent, and learn what it is to let go of everything except what I care about: seeing the world and making people's lives better

ABOUT ME

I'm currently getting my MBA with a computational finance focus at the University of Washington in Seattle and having a great time doing it! I work as a financial risk analyst at a big, evil finance company. I speak a few languages, but I'd like to speak a LOT more. My Chinese is better since I got back from China, but it still needs work. Next is Arabic!!! : D

PHILOSOPHY

I am personally an atheist, but I believe everyone should create as much good as they can as often as they can. Treat everyone better than you've been treated yourself. Love everyone, even the people you don't like.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I would LOVE to host anyone from any other country, cook for you, and hear all about your travels! Travelers are always the coolest people around and they are a hoot to talk to! Seattle is a very international city and there is so much to see and do. I'd love to share it with you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I couchsurfed all over China and had a wonderful experience! I also love hosting, though, so feel free to send a couchrequest!

Interests

Hiking, rock-climbing, running, camping, languages, learning, talking, reading. The usual I guess :)

Music, Movies & Books

I like ALL kinds of music. Hip Hop, country, blues, rock, metal, anything and everything that makes my head move back and forth. I have a BIG music collection on my laptop too :)

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I spent nearly 30 hours in a standing-room-only train across China. I could only squat, lean, pound redbull, and bask in the shared misery with my fellow travelers.

I saw Lance Armstrong win the Tour de France for the 7th time in a row. I know he came out about the steroid thing, but it was amazing at the time. Like a roaring river of people and bicycles and cars going around l'Arche de Triomphe.

I went to a night club in Kashgar, the Muslim cultural capital of Xinjiang province in China. No alcohol, just redbull, american idol-style singers, middle eastern dance offs, and free huka. It was incredible. Danced until the sun came up.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach a lot of things! Spanish, Chinese, English, Finance, Chess, Piano, knowledge about cheese, wine, history (I love history), Finance, Excel, anything you want!
