Why I’m on Couchsurfing


In the past I used couchsurfing to meet new people and make new friends. I live with 2 female roommates and we host couch surfers in my apartment in Chicago. Now I am planning to travel more often and looking for a couch during my visit to Japan (mostly Tokyo) and Taiwan (Taipei and east coast).


I play volleyball, soccer, billiards. I play whiffleball with my coworkers after work. I like taking photos with my SLR. I am interested in learning foreign languages; learning Mandarin lately. I like the soundtracks of the film Tron. I like experiencing new things, places, people. I love sushi. I know how to make sushi. I cook too. I'll cook for you too. I love biking around the lake and bike to work. I enjoy hiking and camping.
