About Me

I've been hopping between Hong Kong and the US for the past few years and just relocated to Boston. Always up for meeting new people and learning new things!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

It's always fun to meet like-minded travelers and adventurers :)


My collection of interests include: playing piano and learning new instruments (currently trying to learn the accordion + ukulele), unicycling, learning new languages, playing with our cat, exploring new restaurants and cafes, taking pictures of landscapes and animals.

Obscure museums, urban exploring, concerts, jazz clubs, city views, hiking, and kayaking all make me excessively happy.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books- psych/social science books, memoirs, trivia books. Any good recommendations?

Movies & TV- dramas, independent movies, comedies, documentaries.

Music- anything that sounds good, though leaning towards more indie/alternative/oldies. Also I follow about 20 podcasts about different things like social science, politics, and criminal justice
