About Me


**We use a VPN so if our login location is not in China, don't think we're not in China. Just getting around the firewall. We're always in Yantai!**

We're a laid back couple. I've been living in China over 7 years. Originally came as a teacher, liked it, met my wife, and now am studying Chinese full time at Yantai University!


We just try to live nice simple happy lives. Nothing amazing, but if there is one thing we are, it's happy.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


We've hosted several people and surfed one time while traveling. Great experiences!


All positive. It's such a great project to connect travelers and create a more immersive traveling experience.


Obviously we're interested in traveling. Other than that I play some guitar and like to write music. Zoe loves hand making and changing clothes. We both love to cook, so if we have time we might make something delicious. More recently we've both gotten into working out and exercise!
