About Me

Note (sep14,2023): can’t host for the next few months, I’ll be taking multiple trips myself and will be busy with a few other life endeavors!! Sorry 😢

Born in GuangZhou, China, raised in San Francisco, finished a mechanical engineering degree in the central valley of California, now having the time of my life around Boulder, CO.

I live an active life style, especially after moving to CO. Enthusiastic about running, acrobatics, hiking, pole dancing, swing dance, climbing, and SUP. In fact, my hobbies change faster than seasons… I guess you can say I'm a Jill of all trades, master of none type of girl.

Sandwiched between two distinct cultures and growing up in the epitome of the great American Melting Pot, aka San Francisco Bay Area, I come to appreciate and love different cultures from around the world. People are great, but food and stories will make any place a notch better. So please, start a conversation, recommend a restaurant/bar, recommend a hike; I'd love to meeting people and listening to their stories. Hoping to build more myself as well.

Covid update** fully vaccinated and boosted as of 2022. I would kindly request any guests to be as well—not interested in long COVID 😜

Disclaimer: I have absolutely zero interest in using CS as a dating app, please do not send me messages or friend request if that’s the intent. Thank you respectfully.

Music, Movies, and Books

Honestly I’m terrible with America pop culture since I didn’t grow up with it. Ever since I started trail running though, I fell in love with audiobooks and podcasts… imagine this, I ran an ultra-marathon for 13hrs and spent the whole time listening to the final book of Harry Potter😂

Music preference? Alt pop, indie, alt Rock, jpop, chill EDM, Soul

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

1) I help building satellites and space telescopes. Present tense* :)

2) Met some interesting souls in Suleimania, Iraq.

Teach, Learn, Share

How the aerospace industry work. Cool hikes of places I've been to. Fashion, life, political discussion. How to cook (let's just say I love mixing eastern Asian, Mexican, American, and French cuisines, since that's what I was exposed to). Please teach me phrases in your language and how to prepare your favorite dish?
