About Me

I am an American Peace Corps volunteer living in a small town in SW China. Some of my interests are music, meteorology, reading and of course swaps!

I am up for private swaps, especially overseas. If you are interested, just message me!

Please don't send me any homemade food items, or anything not factory sealed without messaging me privately first.

I'm pretty new to this site and want to build up my reputation through some swaps. So far I absolutely love the site and the people I've met. I will be updating my profile as I go here.

Favorite Books

Isaac's storm In the Garden of Beasts Devil in the White City The Catcher in the Rye Ender's Game So many I cannot name them all!

Favorite Music

Classical music, Jazz of all kinds, And really anything and everything!


TEA: I'm not much of a tea snob, I love citrus teas, and cinnamon tea. I am not allergic to any foods, so that is not a problem for me.

Loose tea is fine, but please seal it well if you do decide to send loose tea :)

What I collect

I collect newspapers from other countries, and in many different languages. I also collect coins, and paper money from overseas.

What I wish for:

Newspaper from your town/country- I collect newspapers from around the world. I don't know how I started this collection, but it's something I enjoy.

Something you've drawn or some piece of your original artwork. I will ALWAYS appreciate something hand made. Your proficiency is not what matters to me, it's the taking of time to make something by hand. That always means a lot.

A letter in Russian or Arabic - I love viewing other languages. I love the look of Arabic, even though I never learned the language growing up. Russian is also such an interesting language to me. I love the look of the cyrillic alphabet.

Tea or Candy that I cannot get here in the United States. I love trying new things :)

I love hard candies, sweet or sour.

Postcards from your town or country, This can always be a nice surprise.

What I can send you

Any items from the United States you may be interested in.

Candy or tea Newspapers Beauty products Postcards Coffee drinks like Starbucks Letters Just a list here, If there is something specific you would love to receive in our swap, please let me know! :)

Things I dislike

There is not much I dislike.

I'm not big on stickers I'm not allergic to anything so no worries there.

Comment: William, You made me chuckle with your choice of book! I decided to read it with Morgan Freeman's voice in the back of my head, and it worked! I got through both pages! :-) Not my first choice in reading material, for sure, but I send you props for getting through the entire book! Happy Swapping!

How fascinating that you collect newspapers from around the world, too. I have newspaper front pages from my travels since the 1960s. I keep them in a camphor wood trunk upstairs, and every now and then I just browse through them and remember the fun times I had visiting that town or that country. Nice to meet you!
