About Me

I'm an urban planning student, I have weird geeky kind of fascination with maps, transportation networks, community planning, urban design, etc
I'm a music lover and I play classical piano... once in a blue moon haha. I stopped taking classes a few years ago, though I'm a decent sight reader so if you have a keyboard and wanna try some duets I'm in!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I find it kinda funny how casually we will put up a friend on our couch, but when we find yourselves in a different city, with millions of couches in people's houses, we still pay big sums of money to sleep in a boring generic hotel room!
I believe that sharing and hospitality, paying it forward, using our physical resources to the maximum of their potential, and discovering and sharing in other people's ways of life can only be in the best interest of everyone involved ^^


I enjoy fantasy and sci-fi novels (because you know, fictional world>real world), documentaries about *literally* anything if they are well made, a bit more picky when it comes to movies. Favorable bias towards anything with queer narrative ;)
I'm getting into anime as well and learning a bit of Japanese language along the way!

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm into skills and knowledge sharing. I enjoy sharing my cooking with others (vegan), I have a degree in massage therapy and give good massages, I make good coffee drinks, I can also help you find your way around and even give a bike tour if time permits.
