About Me


Coming soon to a country near you...


Continually dabbling in languages for years in places I find interesting.


Be excellent to each other! --Bill & Ted

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Though I no longer am living there, people are also welcome to mail me specific questions about travel around Xinjiang, the region where I lived over recent years.


My first CouchSurfing experiences were all hosting, back when I had an apartment to share in far-western China. Then it was about connecting with people on an trip out of China, going overland to Europe. Now that I'm nomadic, I'm curious to see where CouchSurfing next takes me.

My secret shame is that I am functionally illiterate

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done


Teach, Learn, Share

I could introduce you to the basics of either Chinese or Arabic calligraphy, if you're curious.
