About Me


To become literate in Taiwan.


"First of all, I am awesome. That's all you really need to know, but I'll continue anyway..." Tyler Jank, San Francisco CS.

I've been a Couchsurfer since I was 17 years old (I know, it wasn't "legal" Oh well!) and expect to be doing this for a while yet. In NYC I am a very active Couchsurfer and have hosted small and large events alike. I've been so fortunate to have made countless lifelong friends over several amazing years.

Unfortunately, I am incredibly busy in Taiwan and for the most part am regretfully unable to partake in CS events. Sorry ahead of time if I do not respond to your messages.

If you want to see my 1,000+ (no exaggeration) photos of Couchsurfing events, you'll have to check out my Facebook. Which means you'll first have to be my friend, huh?

I'm not a vegetable; I will not control myself.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


2008 and 2009 were the most dynamic and exciting of my life. It was saturated with constant couchsurfing events and new friends.
...Absolutely incredible.

2010-May of 2011 saw me locked in a cage at university during which I managed to sneak away for very necessary CS bonding and debauchery.

I couchsurf, host when I can, and attend and host as many events as I can.


A few of the couches I've surfed:
Jonathan Esparza in Miraflores, Peru with NYCSer Kristin Pedemonti.
Tyler Jank and Roomies in San Francisco. (I fell in love with flowers in my hair)
The awesome Adam Kois and John VanGeem in Chicago. [Best couchsurfing experience ever]
Jon Matthis in Albany with Mustafa Meetup Group
-Organizer to CS NPZ Invasion: Oct 10-11th 2009


International relations


Books about international relations, ie insurgency and counterinsurgency, disaster response and coordination efforts, policy creation and implementation, security and conflict, international political economy, international trade and finance, and of course the occasional starving child study.


Music, Movies, and Books

I don't like "Everything" or even "A little bit of everything".

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Singing "We Shall Overcome" with Pete Seeger, Joan Baez, and all of Madison Square Garden with J Kruczynski

Graduate college.

Moved to Taiwan, Taipei.

A trip to San Francisco where I showed up at BaseCamp door (just to say hello and see what it was all about) and was incredibly surprised to have a friend from NYC answer the door!
