About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To understand the world better. To escape from the clutches of financial demons in Milano. To drag friends to Bellinzona... or find a job there

ABOUT ME

I'm half Italian and half Taiwanese, Milano is my home. Today I write programs, mostly for banks. In the past, I've also been sport journalist for yahoo. In the future, I look forward to understanding CS a bit better (as well as the world and everything else, of course!). Whenever possible, I try to escape from the clutches of financial demons by going abroad, attracted by the relaxed atmosphere of Switzerland, the sparkling cities of Belgium and the warmth of Polish cuisine. I'm always happy to meet new people, so if you happen to pass by Milano blow a whistle. Maybe I'm not much of a guide (I hardly know my city, I usually prefer smaller towns), but perhaps we can discover it together? :-)

PHILOSOPHY

The more you travel, the less you know...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

It's too early to say... maybe I'll answer later to this one

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Having signed up 0,5 seconds ago, my CS experience is limited to trying to fill in this profile form ;-)

Interests

Playing football and tennis, books, cinema, travelling... especially where there are mountains or huge parks. Lately I prefer wilderness or endless meadows over big cities, which nevertheless are a great opportunity for getting in touch with different people.

Music, Movies & Books

Six Degrees of Separation with Will Smith, operas by Verdi and "At night under a bridge of stone" by Perutz are the first titles that float up to my mind.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Travelling always yields to something amazing. Bellinzona may be the most splendid place I've been to, although Wieliczka salt mines and Brussels Central Square are also quite sensational.

I also very much enjoyed the recent rail-trip around Poland in 9 days. It was surprising to find company throughout all days... especially in Poznan, as I hardly knew anyone. And instead, it seems like all it takes is a... meal in a mleczny bar. There, you'll find someone to talk with, they'll drag you into some dragon pub where you'll get introduced to several other people. And, before you know it, you'll know twenty people or so! Uhm, but maybe I was just lucky. Anyway, it was then that I learnt about "Couchsurfing"

Teach, Learn, Share

At 4 am I don't feel much of a teacher. Maybe later :-)
