About Me


To boldly go where no one has gone before


I'm working so I can travel, but ideally I'd like to travel because I'm working. Right now I'm in the US, but I've lived in a bunch of international cities (Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Taipei) and I'm interested in exploring places beyond China.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I'm trying out CouchSurfing on the advice of my sister, who backpacked through Europe and said it let her meet all sorts of awesome people.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books: anything by Thomas Pynchon, John Kennedy Toole

Movies: Anything directed by Stanley Kubrick, Zhang Yimou, David Fincher, Martin Scorsese, or Quentin Tarantino. Don't get me started on movies, really. I spend way too much time on IMDB and am full of completely useless trivia.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Climbed a mountain in Sichuan Province and looked out from a temple at the top to see nothing but clouds below.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you basic Mandarin phrases and swear words.

Or how to make the best red beans and rice you've ever tasted.
