About Me


Get my 7th grade students to pass their English semester exams! After that - I wish I knew.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Well, my current home in far rural China doesn't see too many visitors, but as I continue to see where the world takes me, so too will I have a spare couch.


Where to begin? Improving my Chinese, fencing, choosing a path less traveled, swing dancing, or any other kind of dancing, film studies, improving my teaching/education in general

Music, Movies, and Books

I'm mostly a movie person, with music and books trailing behind:
Indiana Jones, When Harry Met Sally, The Royal Tenenbaums, What Dreams May Come, Toy Story, Wayne's World, Children of Men, Back to the Future, Memories of Murder, Lost in Translation, PT Anderson films. I love a ton of movies, but these are the ones I always come back to.
