A little about me




In addition to English, I'm also fluent in Mandarin, Taiwanese and currently learning Spanish

In 2018, I sold most of my earthly possessions and traveled across continents to see the world. On that trip, I got to meet Elvis in Chiang Mai, wave at the Pope in Palermo; I even planned and executed a successful eight-person dance party on the Trans-Siberian Railway
