About Me

!!! Hi I am currently living between Scottsdale and Shanghai and moving around quite a bit,, so mostly likely I can't host you... Have a good trip!


If you don't go, you never know...


New to Scottsdale, Arizona after 5+years in Mexico (Colima and Mexico City), before that I was born and raised in Wuhan, China then worked in Shanghai for 6+ years.

always wanna to see/know/discover more places/cultures.. trying to always be curious and passionate.

typical Sagittarius( don't ask me what is that, no answer provided:@)


cherish what you have and try your best to gain what you want.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I offered my couch in Shanghai,China and in México, went to CS meeting every now and then and hang out with CSers.
Also started to surf at other people's places and view the city from a different view than outsider.


Always bring unexpected surprises!!

I have met some super cool CSers, of course there are dodgy people everywhere, but the majority here is surpring nice people. They restore my faith about sharing and give me different views about many things.

Been friends with those surfers who chose to stay in Sh, travelled with my first host in México when he came to visit me, and also host others who once host me, being skype, fb, postcard, mail with some CSers..

If you just want to find a free place to crash, please go find other people.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Dive with hammer sharks and swim with whale sharks. ---you are right I am a shark/whale fan!

Teach, Learn, Share

My knowledge about China/ México, and also some other places in China/ Southeast Asia.

Being a Mandarin teacher myself, may I can definitely help you with Mandarin studying. And after being in Mexico for 5years, if you wish, I can share my knowledge of Spanish with you( hablo bien mexicano;))

I like cooking, so maybe we can exchange ideas about it or try something together.

.... for me, I am curious to learn whatever anyone wants to teach me!
