About Me


To find a worthy mission to complete


American living in Shanghai, my friends would say that I'm friendly, considerate, laid back, handsome. Then they would ask me for money. ;)


I think continual learning is key, I love seeing the connections in different areas of thought. Scientist by training, artist at heart.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm a CS newbie!


Living in Shanghai, I love the city life but miss the outdoors. When travleing I want to
get my fill of clean air, green space, hiking, biking, good food and fun!

  • dining
  • outdoor activities
  • cycling
  • hiking
  • sailing
  • science

Music, Movies, and Books

Right now I'm reading mostly easy Chinese readers...

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being alone in a huge park in Oslo on a rainy spring day, with slippery
naked statues all around me. Getting chased by deer in Nara. Sailing in the Virgin Islands.
Crossing the Atlantic on a big steam-ship...oh wait, that was a movie.

Teach, Learn, Share

I like smart fun open people, but who doesnt?
