I recently finished medical residency and am now working in Seattle. My family lives near Los Angeles, and I spent many years in San Francisco. I love the outdoors, traveling, reading, and learning about different cultures. I am also a modern dancer, tango dancer, and musician. I like meeting people and often choose to travel on my own because it promotes a sense of adventure. I'm an otherwise easy-going, flexible, and quiet person who doesn't smoke, is allergic to cats, but really loves dogs. I am mostly looking for a cozy, safe place to stay in the hub of easy public transport, and am looking for a host with a similar temperament. I speak English, am Chinese, have a touch of Mandarin and Spanish under my belt, and am trying to teach myself French.
