About Me

A shy extrovert. A slow eater. A designer with a little bit of visual OCD. A little person who wants to do big things. Busy bee and don't sleep enough, but love to enjoy life at a slower pace when I can. I take my time visiting new places. I don't drink, I sip. I am short so I walk slow, slow enough for a quality conversation. I can be funny when I am comfortable enough to joke around or when I feel like my effort is appreciated. And if you don't find me funny, you will probably still find me easygoing. ;)

I am an UX/UI designer working in Irvine, California. I live on my computer for work and while I am at home, I am obsessed with the internet. However, when I travel, I forget about my dependence on my computer, and realize how easy it is to drop it and connect with reality again if I am willing to. I love traveling, and the most memorable attractions are always people I met along the way. :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I mainly participate by couchsurfing when I travel and when I don't, I like meeting up with traveling couchsurfers.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Stayed with some wonderful hosts and have countless interesting conversations. I met several couchsurfers I keep in touch with over the years and met up again and again. CS experience has been super amazing!

Interests

Not too much into heavy party scenes, but very much enjoy mellow hangouts and interesting people with meaningful, intellectual, in-depth, educational, or personal conversations. Don't really drink much, although starting to venture into wines and cocktails, make awesome signature mojitos called "Sophjitos." Satisfied with just coffee and hot chocolate, but by all means if good conversations only come out over a few drinks with you, will gladly have some.

More traditional interests:
Design, art, food, museums, learning, crafts, mellow music that's not too loud, science, tech, camping, traveling, cooking, reading, movies, fashion, nature...
