关于我

CURRENT MISSION

Learn, create, share

Constantly reinventing and trying to make the most of our human experience.

ABOUT ME/ PHILOSOPHY

I believe that everyone is smart in their own way and there is a lot to learn by listening to each other. Aside from words, we can learn from other's energy, attitude, and actions if we take the time. I enjoy spending time with great people and being a part of all the great things going on.

我为什么加入 Couchsurfing

I started meeting couch surfers through some of my friends and was amazed with how nice everyone was and the sense of community they had.

音乐、电影和书籍

Music:
American folk like Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and Townes Van Zandt. Jazz groups like Pat Metheny, Sonny Rollins, Chris Potter, John Coltrane, Lettuce, Robert Glasper, Soulive
Others like David Bowie, Dream Theater, gamelan music and heavy heavy metal.

Live Music Capitol:
Austin is full of live music in almost every genre, but it is really well known for blues, acoustic singer song-writers, rockabilly, rock/jam bands, and jazz. I like going to live events and can show guests lots of great shows in town.

Books:
Non-fiction and sci-fi.

我做过的一件不可思议的事情

I went from Miami to Tampa for a weekend to go to a concert. Instead of going back home I decided to drive north and go for a road trip across the U.S. with the few things I had. During that trip I found my new home in Austin and it has been a great change. I guess I'm technically still on that trip :)

Hiking the Salkantay trek to Macchu Picchu.

Riding alongside a moose on a 4 wheeler.

Camping in Alaska.

5 summer festivals (matsuri tour) in Tohoku Japan with my good friends and couchsurfing hosts.

Stayed in a small village in Shikoku Japan and attended their school for a week.

Ran across an obstacle course in the ocean to catch a fish and carry it back across the course... followed by TV interview.

Danced in a traditional Japanese parade.

Played the US Open racquetball tournament.

Started a party bus company with my Airbnb host.

Spent a month doing a meditation practice in Vietnam.

3 week California road trip with a new friend.

Swimming in bioluminescence in Mexico.

Spent a summer backpacking Peru as my first solo travel.

Took a 1 month Europe trip on a whim with no plans.

Had a whole other life in Malaysia with great friends and family.

Cruised around Greek Islands and Mediterranean with cousins.

Scuba diving trip around Carribean.

100% couchsurfing trip going around Taiwan.

2017... like the whole year.
2018... was pretty amazing too.
2019... better than I could imagine.
