About Me

Born and raised in Vietnam, university and adult life in San Diego, a work stint in Shanghai, now back living that California dream in San Francisco.

I like traveling, experiencing new things and learning new cultures. I'm always up to travel to new places, meeting new friends, and trying local cusines.

Update: I will not be hosting after the end of October in SF as I will be moving to Europe. Moving closer to end of October the apt will be slightly empty with bare essentials as I will try to get rid of my stuffs. Also, please do not request a stay more than 3 days as I have stated in the '"you should know section." Any requests more than 3 days will be automatically decline from me without a reply. Thanks.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
