Working my way to build my green ranch- a place where design, education, technology, and sustainability come together.
I am an interactive designer working in Santa Monica, California. I live on my computer for work and while I am at home, it's almost a little information obsessed. However when I travel, I can go weeks and weeks without it which not only makes me realize my dependence on the internet, and also how I can easily drop it and connect with reality again if I am willing to. Ever since my europe trip last summer, a switch in my heart was turned on and I feel the urge to travel all the time to reconnect with the beautiful earth and cultures. I also met a lot of interesting people that made traveling so much more special to me.
It is safe to say that I am sometimes a little shy and take a little bit to warm up to new friends, it really depends on my confidence level at the time, but my personality is pretty outgoing and funny when you get to know me. Interesting combination of extremely positive and worrying too much. I am polite and respectful; sometimes joke that if you dont find me interesting you will still find me easygoing.:)
I think, therefore, I am.
Keep what my thoughts with me while respecting others'.
To live life is constantly trying to balance all elements in life.
Some great chinese philosophy really speak my mind.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Stayed with some wonderful hosts and have countless interesting conversations. CS experience has been super amazing!
Not too much into heavy partying scenes but very much enjoy mellow hangouts and interesting people with meaningful, intellectual, in-depth, educational, or even 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.

Save a baby from choking using the knowledge I vaguely remember from a health ed class.
