About Me


disfrutar de la vida


I was born in a small village in China, and grew up in a smalltown in Midwestern Wisconsin.

I've lived in NYC for 3 years, time sure flies! Trying to explore as much of the city and eat as much as I can, you should join me on these excursions. :)

The last time I was abroad, I lived in Lima, Perú and Bogotá, Colombia for a year and loved it. I worked at Heifer International, a global NGO that focuses on sustainable development through agriculture. It was a great gig and I got to visit tiny communities around the Andean mountains of Perú, so can't complain!

It's been a long time, a long time coming, but I know a change is gonna come. ~Sam Cooke


I live to seek. I want to discover what is, how it came to be, and where it may go I love beauty for its own sake. I think that idealism is too narrow a word to limit the capacity for humans. I'm trying to find my own identity, to wake up my mind, and open my heart. At the same time, the world is calling me to come be part of the whole. And it's this rhythm that makes up the dance of my life.

Life is an adventure, and I want to explore the hell out of it =)
