About Me


Absorb and reflect


i'm an explorer, okay, i get curious about everything and i want to investigate all kinds of stuff!


The ordinary is extraordinary.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Hosting in Cambridge, Prague and Beijing, surfing all over Eurasia - both amazingly positive experiences.


Trying to cultivate an interest in everything, but mainly: subway stations, fruit, industrial architecture, experimental music, escalators, 20th century dictators, stand up comedy, languages, microeconomics, librarians, smells, things found on the ground, the solar system. and philosophy (sometimes).

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Every genre has something good. At the moment I'm most interested in Chinese music, Jazz and 20th century classical.
Books: I read anything put in front of me, and occasionally stuff put behind me.
Movies: Anything intelligent, or with Dinosaurs.
