About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Escape!

ABOUT ME

I am a 20 something Taiwan born American raised little weirdo. I grew up in Taiwan until I was 9 and spent the remainder of my life up till now in the rainy regions of Seattle Washington. Growing up in a foreign country, I have managed to embrace many view points that are vastly different then my family. However, I am also very proud of my experience living in 2 very different cultures.

I have a taste for the exotic, nothing really fazes me, as I enjoy the fresh taste of the stinkiest tofu and preserved egg local to Taiwan as much as the next hamburger and pasta meal. I have live in rural farm lands of a 3rd world country for 9 years, and also in some of the nicest neighborhoods in the United States.

I have a passion to learn more about your country, drink some libations and chat.

PHILOSOPHY

... when i figure it out?

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

How i participate?.... i dive in most of the time, if im embarrassed then is shy off to one side, so its up to you to push me over the brink of indecision.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have surfed mainly in Taiwan, also in Canada as well as around NY. As college comes to a wrap I hope to be able to have a little more flexibility to use this wonderful tool!.

Interests

I have jumped off waterfalls, and lived in depth for over 10 years in 2 different countries. I have grown up in adversity but grown to love living in cultures different then mine. I will probably get along with you.

Music, Movies & Books

Count of Monte Cristo- favorite book read it a bunch of times. anything by Alexander Dumas and Jules Vernes. I love classics it amazes me at how these people had the though process and imagination to envision things that were IMPOSSIBLE

Teach, Learn, Share

I don't want to teach, but I would love to share the little I know of the world, and always ready to learn.

What I Can Share With Hosts

Just let me know, always willing to pre arrange a gift or make a meal! However my cooking skills aren't really that great. I do make some good fried rice though.

Countries I've Visited

Australia, Cambodia, Canada, Cuba, Indonesia, Japan, Mexico

Countries I've Lived In
