About Me


The objective is to have existed in various awesome places on Earth and connect with cool humans along the travels.


Canadian-Vietnamese raised in the Nation's Capital. Budding software developer and street dance hobbyist. The latter serves as travel motivation!


Albert Einstein sounds like a smart guy. Once upon a time, he said, "Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new." I'm moving away from playing it safe all the time, and instead taking more risks for a more fulfilling life. Let's explore!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Surfing's probably the best way, in my mind, to experience a different culture or locale by living with a resident and not so much as a tourist. Right now I'm interested in travelling to cool places and making new relationships!


Couchsurfing newbie here. That'll change soon!


A cool endeavour I involve myself in is street dance, which serves as a creative and physical outlet and has resulted in memorable travel experiences with friends. My other hobby since forever has to do with video games, and I've recently began making them with friends for fun. Additional interests include web development, self-improvement, and drumming.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies? Superheroes! Music? Friggin' everything (though we can talk about bands like Weezer and Metric, and electronic genres like house and drum and bass). Books? I read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo recently, and that was the ish.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've seen people from different cultures, people who don't speak the same language, come together to share in different street dance styles. Luckily you don't need to speak Japanese or understand French to appreciate other dancers.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can introduce you to underground street dance culture. Decent sushi places where I live as well. And if you wanna become a programmer, I can give you a good start to that.
