About Me




This will sound boring: I'm a student. I'm pretty mixed up culturally, I like a lot of different things.

I've lived in a bunch of different countries - grew up mostly in Singapore, then moved to Norway as a teen, then university in England, a year in the Czech Republic, a couple of months in Denmark, France, then back to Denmark, then Norway... Right now I'm in Japan, and will probably be here for awhile. :)

I'm a constant student, and really enjoy reading and well, learning...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have had the great privilege of surfing couches around France and San Francisco, hope to be able to help out a little now that I'm somewhat 'stable'!


Purely positive!


Avid reader, explorer, and wanderer of the wild

Music, Movies, and Books

Will keep this brief because listing would be tedious and irrelevant! But, anything interesting/out-of-the worldish/yet significant nonetheless is most appreciated.

Big Wes Anderson fan, and lately enjoy anything that is not too pretentious and flashy.

Authors whose works I tend to enjoy:
The list is pretty exhaustive, so I'll skip it. The worst book that I ever (attempted to) read though, was the Lovely Bones. Horrendous. So bad I couldn't finish it but felt compelled to skim through because I usually finish books. Maybe that tells you something about me.

very specific but very open

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Being a preschool teacher. I thought I hated kids but they can be pretty amazing. I hoard their art.

Teach, Learn, Share

I enjoy playing around with various things and maybe meeting various people will aid in these varied projects. I enjoy learning new languages and it's always fun trying to speak knowing you're not being understood. I can help you be misunderstood.
