About Me


Don't stop believing


I've been teaching English at universities in Fujian for almost five years. I'm from New Hampshire but have lived in Oregon, Vermont, Alaska and Michigan. I lived for two years in Sanming, a small city in Fujian. Now I live in Jimei, which is a part of Xiamen just north of Xiamen Island, about 45 minutes away from downtown by bus. I love Frisbee, writing, reading and Chinese.
