About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Running towards the sunset.

ABOUT ME

I enjoy biking for hours with friends, exploring abandoned buildings, dancing with reckless abandon, and collaborative works of art. I'm never happier than when I'm around a campfire with friends, drinking a beer and singing while someone strums on the guitar.

Strong GLBT ally. Supporter of Immigrant Rights. Defender of Environmentalism. Unabashed Radical babe.

I'm a Calvin in search of my Hobbes.

PHILOSOPHY

I can't think of anything clever enough just yet.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

In 2010 I met up with an all-girl motorcycle gang in Taitung, Taiwan, and we cruised the countryside for a week. Black sand beaches, Majong, and Xiaomijiu (and maybe a little Bing lan for its teeth-whitening affects). Amazing gals, even better times.
