Hello fellow swappers! I’m a 37 year old guy living in South Korea, but originally from the USA (Florida). Travel is a big passion of mine. I’ve lived and worked in a few different countries and visited over 40. Some of my favorite places/cultures are Italy, Japan, Germany, and mountainous regions in North America like the Canadian and Colorado Rockies.
I’m an English teacher in a small city in the middle of Korea called Chungju (pictured above). "Chung" actually means center, so it is literally the center of the country. It’s a beautiful place with many lakes, rivers, and mountains surrounding it. We are also famous nationally for our apples! One of my favorite things is taking morning walks through the apple orchards while listening to music.
I've lived in Korea for over ten years total and can speak the language, so it really feels like home. I get a bit of anxiety every time I visit the states because it feels more foreign now than Korea does. Life is easy and wonderful here! I'm also happy to do any private swaps if you'd like to exchange for Korean things like K-pop, beauty products, special papers, etc. Just send me a message!
I joined Swap Bot because I tend to spend more time at home these days. In my younger years I was always going out with friends to bars and parties, etc. I guess now that I'm getting older the domestic country life suits me more. So, creating swaps is a fun way to connect with people around the world and feed my artistic side. I love taking the time to make something really special for my swap partner.
I enjoy listening to music, reading, watching movies, or being creative. Crafting is kind of a new hobby, but others include sewing, bookbinding, playing piano, photography, fussing over my houseplants, and macramé.
I love plant and botany themes, although I'm not big on floral designs.
I like all things vintage and old maps!
Also space, the ocean, or animals (mostly orca whales, dogs, sloths, bears, really all animals except cats, haha).
My favorite colors are earth tones such as green, any shade of brown, and dark red. I like anything made with craft paper and neutral tones.
I personally don't like pink, pastels, too cute or kawaii.
I love postcards! I would be happy to receive any postcard from your home country, art, graphic design, weird and strange postcards, etc. If you have a card you feel hesitant to send because it is raunchy or too strange, please send it my way, haha.
I am not picky on what I'd like to receive. Some ideas are washi tape, memo pads, blank cards, letter sets, stickers, pens, die cuts, tote bag, or candy, etc. Just have fun and be creative! I will appreciate anything sent with thought and care.
