Making everything work out
Been in China since 2001 starting in Beijing, a long time in Kunming, then Guangzhou, now in Shenzhen. I like living here and can't imagine a life without the countless adventures I've experienced since moving to China. I love eating at new places and having long conversations over beer.
Life is short, but just long enough to take a couple of chances, try things you've never done before, and have lots of adventures.
The meaning of life is to find meaning in the things you do.
Smiling, being polite, patient and gracious to the kindness of others makes life a lot easier.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
My work can be disruptively busy so I apology if I'm slow to respond. I'm trying to be a more proactive about my responses.
I'm also happy to help out with the odd China related question. This place can be tough to figure out sometimes.
Usually surf on friends couches, but have had great experiences with the people I've hosted and met through this website.
Environment conservation, social welfare, languages, China stuff.
Music, Movies, and Books
Guns, Germs and Steel is the easiest book anyone can recommend. I generally like non fiction or creative sci-fi/fantasy.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Learned Chinese! Saw Kawagebo Peak in Yunnan, China on a perfectly clear day.
