About Me


I have two passions in life and they are traveling and teaching English to non-native speakers. I am new to traveling but I love it and I plan on visiting every continent (well, maybe not Antarctica) in order to experience different cultures.


I am friendly, open-minded, fun, easygoing, passionate, and motivated. I love to meet new people and experience new things. Traveling is the only way to do this and it provides a kind of thrill and excitement to life!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Paris,Seoul, Chengdu, and Irkutsk: all were awesome! I've also hosted couchsurfers in Texas at my parents' home as well as at my apartment in Shanghai.


I like to spend time with friends outdoors hiking mountains or going to the park to have a picnic. I also like scuba diving, working out, dancing, reading, museums, beaches, lakes, etc.

Music, Movies & Books

Movies-The Warriors, Sixteen Candles, documentaries, etc


Music-Ella Fitzgerald, Louie Armstrong, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, dance, hip hop, Spanish, etc

Books-The Unbearable Lightness of Being, Candide, etc

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I hiked Huashan in Xian, China. There is nothing like a view from the top of a mountain. Panda park in Chengdu, sleeping in a gher in Mongolia, and drinking snake baijiu in China.
