About Me


Getting my hands dirty, to keep our ocean clean


Ocean policy professional living in Southern Taiwan. I enjoy meeting new people, experiencing new things, and exploring new worlds.


My philosophy is constantly growing changing evolving. By the time I write it down it is likely different. However the root of all my thoughts is that life is sacred and nature is the supreme teacher.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Happy to go on hikes, hang, or go out for drinks coffee. An occupier of time if you are unsure what to do in expensive Hengchun/Kenting/Pingtung.

Would offer a couch, but I literally do not have anyway to accommodate others right now! I will however provide you with knowledge and companionship to make sure you have a great time in Taiwan's southernmost city.


Been hosted many times by glorious individuals, unofficially. Hoping to make it more official now.


Movies, yoga, beer, fish, Asia, HIKING, nature of all kinds, politics, news, environmental policy, surrealism, electronic music, healthy foods, and also unhealthy foods when appropriate.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Won the first bet I ever made on a horse named "military secret" at the Happy valley racetrack in Hong Kong.

Teach, Learn, Share

Can teach: Hiking, environmental knowledge (all kinds), political insights, project management, economics, and a few other things.

Mostly I am a conversationalist but it is my core tenant to learn as much as possible and teach what I have learned.
