About Me


to love


i've been traveling the united states since october of 2007, living out of the back of my volvo. i just realized that having couch surfers up couldn't hurt. it's been an adventure and i'm always up to talk to anyone about traveling and exploring.

i live in china now. i am happy with this decision.


a lot of people try to classify themselves as either 'glass-is-half-full' or 'glass-is-half-empty' type of person. no one ever stops to realize that we are lucky to have a glass at all.
