I've been enamored with traveling for over 15 years now. Starting out, I rarely strayed from the beaten path. But after traveling to over 30 countries, I now know "visiting" a place is more about meeting and living among the locals.
I'm originally from Kansas City (BBQ country) and my parents are from China and Taiwan. That combo has broadened my palate to "anything goes". I love trying new dishes, however exotic, at least once.
I'm an entertainment junkie, always travelling with an iPad full of movies and tv shows. My favorites include Amelie, Aliens, Lord of the Rings, the Godfather and Mean Girls.
As a guest, I'm very clean and respectful of where I am staying. I sublet my condo in Seattle, so I know what it's like to have guests living long-term in your home. I'm an explorer by day and a homebody by night.
