About Me

I grew up in California, and up until my final year of high school, I'd only ever left the U.S. to visit family in Taiwan. I ended up going to college in Abu Dhabi, though, and since then, I've been all over!

I'm back in California now. I was applying to law school, but ultimately decided against it and started learning to program instead. I'm in the process of applying to coding bootcamps.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love meeting other travelers and getting to know new places through the insight and hospitality of locals.

I hope to keep surfing and to host someday!
