About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Travel around the world and live life to the MAX

ABOUT ME

I love globetrotting! I have traveled extensively worldwide, throughout every continent except Antarctica.

I was born and raised in Hong Kong, lived in Chicago, then San Diego and now in Seattle!

PHILOSOPHY

I try to live everyday as if it is the last. Not to sound morbid, but I try to immerse myself in many different activities. You only get one chance to live, so you might as well do everything possible.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

The most enriching part of CS is the multitude of relationships that are formed. People from far away lands are able to get to know each other and different cultures. My experiences with CS folks have always been the highlights of my trips abroad.
