About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To meet other foreigners/locals in Nanjing. Do you like food? I like food. Let's be friends.

ABOUT ME

Canadian born Chinese working overseas in Nanjing working in Finance. Been in China for over a year now and definitely enjoying my time here. Nanjing is one of the best cities to live in China (source: other expats). I live to eat, snowboard, practice Chinese and live in community with friends.
