About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To get my Chinese language skills up to par!

ABOUT ME

hey guys! born and raised in california, after finishing my bachelor's degree, i decided to travel to taiwan to study chinese. as this trip would be my first time in over a decade, i felt excited, nervous, and a lot of other emotions. before i left, my sister, who is also a CSer, introduced me to CSing and, as they say, the rest is history.

PHILOSOPHY

everything will turn out all right in the end.

live life to the fullest and with no regrets.

go with your gut.

you have dreams for a reason. live by them!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

i was blessed to go to a CS meeting very quickly here in taiwan at ximending, shared a few large beers, some one-sided ass whooping in pool (not from me), hookah smoking, and great conversation. hope to share a few more stories in the future.

Interests

i love watching and playing sports, playing video games, the arts, good food, and good conversation.

speaking of food, i LOVE food. i plan on going to culinary school to better my cooking skills. whether or not i want that as my career remains to be seen.

Music, Movies & Books

i will pretty much listen to anything. lady antebellum, james morrison, brendan james, luke bryan, tyrone wells, and adele are currently some of my favorite artists.

i'm not big on movies unfortunately (ask me a really popular movie you think everyone has seen and 9 out of 10 times i probably haven't seen it)

i'm not much of a reader, but when i find something i like, i will spend a whole day reading it. i recently read the geography of bliss by eric weiner, which is about the author's journey to evaluate happiness in the world. a good read, and maybe something to keep in mind on your next CS adventure.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

competing in the dragonboat races in taipei. not only did my team do really well in the competition, but i was able to bond with so many amazing people and had the most amazing experience that i will never forget
