About Me


provide a friendly vegan environment for couchsurfers


I am currently teaching and working on my writings as well as learning Chinese and enjoying all Shanghai has to offer.



Why I'm on Couchsurfing


So far I have hosted but I am planning some traveling soon!! I really enjoy having company and talking with others as I show them my favorite places in the area.


I love all sentient beings and want to do what I can to make the earth a more pleasant and beautiful place to be. I enjoy poetry, music, my cats, skating, and trying new things as long as they are cruelty free. I am very sensitive to the world around me yet I can take almost anything thrown my way.

Music, Movies & Books

My favorite movies are as follows: Until the End of the World, The city of Lost Children, The Princess Bride, The Fisher King, and Sabrina (Hepburn and Bogart).

music with a funeral dirge quality will capture my attention and fascination.

I have lots of favorite books, too many to list but as a writer I love having Roget at my side. I am currently reading Dawkins' The God Delusion, Murakami's Norwegian Wood, and just finished a lovely collection by good friend Djinn Maury.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I teach English and poetry, currently I teach just English as a second language and so far I have seen timid and shy individuals turn into smiling, loving and courageous ones, for instance when I asked a student what her names was she jumped from her chair stating....'I am the great Sophia.' She is four. pretty amazing.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you 'Upside down Kitty.' I can write almost anything. I can make popcorn in wok, finally. I am super great at hanging clothes from a large bamboo pole and my sneaky squirrel get around tactics have a tendency to one getting lost and giving in to a wonderful adventure!!
