About Me


Teacher of International Politics at Northeast Normal University in Changchun, China


I think they would say that I am extremely friendly, inquisitive, and always searching for more. I love to read and LOVE to travel and learn about new cultures. One of the reasons I joined CS was to connect and learn about other cultures and people from around the world. Being global and open to new experiences and adventures is the only way to be. I'm also very polite, considerate and hospitable which I feel should go in here somewhere ;)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Love to connect with anyone from any other culture, its really a hobby and I try as often as I can.


Hosting and surfing in Japan!


This would definitely be meeting people from other countries and just taking chances in life. Two things are most important to me, life is short, and no one is going to help you live your short life to the fullest but you, so you might as well make your dreams come true! I usually spend time reading or thinking about ways to get to places I have never been. Live music, movies, the usual

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Definitely going to Europe for the first time on my own, it gave me such a sense of accomplishment, joy, excitement, and relief. Just the knowledge that so much is out there to explore and see leaves me awestruck everyday.

Living with Buddhist monks in Japan and participating in a meditation session

Being in the middle of the Ocean and ending up in the middle of thousands of dolphins, pretty amazing sight.

My first Deadmau5 show...enough said.

Teach, Learn, Share

Ive always thought I was full of useless knowledge, but then again, I love to learn, and the things I usually love learning about are things others might consider useless knowledge. I have a strong desire to help and support people in any way I can, which is why I love CS. I would hope to connect with and visit as many different cultures as I can, that is the only goal I need.
