I have lived in New York since 2008. I am Taiwanese/ Chinese in my 30s from Taipei, Taiwan. I work in hair industry and go to school for fine art. I love hearing ideas and stories from people around the world. The idea of sharing economic is not only about the money; it's the new way to share limited space for the future. I would be more than happy to provide travel informations and transportation directions. I am looking forward to meet you. Hope you enjoy your stay and have a wonderful trip!!
