About Me


Travel to new destinations to meet and learn from others.


Adventurer. Million Miler. Foodie. Dreamer. Traveler.

"I am always doing things I can't do; that's how I get to do them."--Pablo Picasso


Stay true to yourself, yet always be open to learn.
My contribution to society is having a positive impact on the lives by helping others.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I like to meet interesting people and share experiences


Every CS experience has been positive and have met some amazing people Couchsurfing.


Travel, networking, learning about different people, music, art, sailing/water fun, staying healthy, helping others.

Recently I have interest traveling solo for building self-awareness perspectives on how to create greater impact.

Music, Movies, and Books

My favorite movies are musical and comedies.
I tend to listen to jazz and classical music (When I was young, I played classical and jazz piano).
Right now it seems I'm reading more self-help books as I explore more balance in life.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

In high school traveled to the Arctic Circle (close to the North Pole) by train.

Met an amazing guy who brought me to Asia and spent 15 years together in an exotic land.

Teach, Learn, Share

I always like to learn about different cultures and share what I know with others.

What I Can Share with Hosts

I can share stories and advise on my life and work experiences.
