About Me

Less carbs


Hi there, thanks for checking my profile!

I have a private tutoring center in Brooklyn where we’ve taught English, Japanese, Spanish, and kids afterschool.

I used to have cats, but I also like to walk dogs to encourage adoption. Want to join me on my dog walks? Message me!

I love being social in NYC but these days because of work our interaction might be limited. Hopefully we have time to go to a few special not-for-tourist places or at least have a meal together.

On the day of your arrival, please give me advance notice to see whether I am able to receive you right away. If not, Luana’s Tavern, the bar and restaurant is just next door, and a suitable waiting place.

**Please don't request to be hosted farther than one month away, unfortunately my schedule is too unpredictable to know.**

What's your favorite meal to cook? Cooking together is about more than eating. It’s cooperation and laughter. Generosity and thoughtfulness. If you can't make time to either cook or eat somewhere together, I'm probably not the host for you.

If you do prefer to cook instead of going out to eat, go for it! I'll help. And ask me why my lasagna is famous in Taiwan!


Treat others as you would like to be treated.
