About Me


Letting go


Chinese born Canadian citizen raised in Germany currently trying to make something of myself in the states. In my spare time, I read, write, run, climb, code and sometimes even cook.


I'm not afraid of dying, I'm afraid I haven't been alive enough.
- Nemo Nobody

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've surfed in the states, and many parts of Asia and Europe. Spent four months after graduation traveling through Asia and did most of that through couchsurfing. Met many incredible people through my travels who have shown me nothing but kindness and warmth. Now trying to give back a little by hosting in Seattle.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Futon, hammock and most comfortable beanbag in the world. Also live downtown so within striking distance of all things Seattle. Happy to show people around during the weekends but won't have time during the week. I run almost every day so if that's you're thing as well, I'm happy to show you some of my favorite routes. Otherwise, I take people climbing on Mondays/Fridays and do improv on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I can also share some parkour movements and nifty training places if you're into that. I don't host on Sundays.
