About Me


Cantonese will not kick my ass!


Love community, love music, love helping people get closer to their dreams and love when people help me get closer to my dream of finding a way to both support myself and help people get closer to their dreams. But it's the journey there that counts, right?


When you come to terms with the fact that you are capable of terrible and wonderful things, you take responsibility for yourself as a human being and from here, eventually you will realize that everything is love, How you get there is up to you.

Trust solves way more problems than it creates, just don't be stupid.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Showing people around various cities that I know.  Hosted in Tokyo and was hosted in many cities in China.


Have made many great friends and met some interesting travelers. Still in contact with most of them.


I write songs and play them on the street and bars sometimes.

I love languages and want to speak many. Currently studying Chinese, want to do a European language next.

Music, Movies & Books

Shiina ringo, Baden Powel, Of Montreal, Ryuichi Sakamoto,

Currently listening to afrobeat collections, lots of Chinese folk/rock, and jazzy hip hop

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Reading books in Japanese

Living without thinking about money for a year and learning first hand that sharing is part of human nature and that we all enjoy it as soon as we allow ourselves to.

Teach, Learn, Share

I have a lot of crazy ideas about the world, some of them you might be familiar with. I speak Japanese and Mandarin Chinese pretty well, I'm also really good at living on very little money and finding stuff that locals wish they knew about if you want some suggestions.

Countries I've Visited

China, France, Italy, Thailand

Countries I've Lived In

China, Japan, United States
