About Me

I'm a 28 year old post-doc at UCSD who is always looking to meet new people and for outdoors activity partners! I was born in China, but grew up in St.Louis, and speak both Mandarin and English fluently.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love attending CS activities and meeting fellow CS'ers and hearing about their traveling stories! I have a couch available to fellow CS'ers traveling through the Ann Arbor, Michigan area. The most recent CS experience I have is meeting a group of wonderful CS'ers in London while attending a conference, and exploring the town with them. I'm hoping to accumulate a lot more CS experiences in the future!


I'm into a lot of different hobbies; lots of physical activities (climbing, kayaking, biking, running, weight lifting, sports, hiking, yoga), I'm a huge gearhead for cars and motorcycles, I love homebrewing and micro-brews, and I love cooking!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Tie between climbing the Great Wall by myself and taking a nap at the top, and trying to go for time while climbing Mount Washington.

Teach, Learn, Share

I love chatting/teaching about genetics, cooking/food, exercise/physical activities, automotives, and much more.
