About Me


To host a person from every country in the world or at least try to.


the best way to know me is to just get hosted by me and or go explore a city together. but here is a little bit about me. i am an expat from USA doing what every other expat in china does and that is teaching English. i have been in china since may 2nd to fulfill my dream as a Chinese cook. right now i am living in the country of china in a town called Tongxiang.


those who fly solo have the strongest wings, so dream on!!

cooking solves all the worlds problem.
