About Me

Hello! My name is Loren. I'm a 37-year-old male from the USA, but I live in Chungju, South Korea.

I have lived in Korea for over ten years and speak the language. It has slowly become my home, which I'm happy about. I also love to travel and have been to over 40 countries around the world.

I have a big collection of house plants and love taking care of them. In my spare time I like to read, listen to music, draw, play piano, and sew.

I should say that I am new to Swap Bot, but I am slowly building a decent collection of cards and stamps ready to send out.

If you don't know what to write on your PC, you can tell me some things you are thankful for, or just what you did today.
