About Me


Be happy, and help others to be happy.


Trying to travel around the world as slowly as possible; lucky to have a job that allows me to work and travel at the same time. Spent some time studying abroad, living in Mexico for about 6 month periods more than one time for about a year and a half total in Mexico. Since Mexico have spent a couple of months as an actor in a musical in Malaysia, exploring Tokyo, and going to school in South Korea. So far I've been able to get to Mexico, Malaysia, Japan, South Korea, Italy, France, Singapore, Cambodia, Monaco, USA, Thailand, and technically snowboarded across the border into Switzerland. Because I'm always traveling I arrive in a new country every couple months, and stay for 2-3 months, so am always looking to make new friends when I arrive!


Will Smith is about 80% in line with my own views, much more entertaining to watch him:

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have just been introduced to CS by a friend, still learning.


Somehow I ran into a friend I met in Singapore a week later in a Starbucks in Malaysia. He was headed to a CS event that night and invited me along; - great and interesting people!


Design, traveling, languages/cultures, snowboarding, positive psychology, any experience that scares me, meeting new people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Currently reading 1Q84. Always bounce between fiction/non-fiction.
