Hey, I’m Matt. Born and raised in the state of Arkansas, I didn’t leave the United States for the first time until I was 22. Now I’m 28 and I’m currently living in Guangzhou, China as an English language educator. This is my third year living in Guangzhou and fifth year living in China.
I’ve primarily worked for universities since being in China. Over the past 1.5 years I’ve been working at Guangzhou Medical University, teaching doctors as well as undergraduate and graduate students oral English, conference presentation skills, and research writing.
Growing up in rural America and then moving to the most populous country in the World was a major shock and cultural change but since moving to China’s third largest city I’ve definitely learned to love the city life.
I love food, sports, travel, Starbucks, exploring, and Instagram, which you can find me under this username (parkermatt21).
