This is my second time curating for WeAreXpats and I am thrilled to be back. I am still living in Shanghai, China as I was the first time around but I am moving countries in late December 2019 so expect some extreme new country planning as part of my curation week this time around. But don’t worry, I will also share heaps about Shanghai, China and many other places I visit via my earbuds and microphone as well. I am an avid podcast listener and Podcast Host/Producer. Geopats Podcast is my solo podcast (it is a consolidation of the old Virtual Expats, Changing Scripts and Bookish Expats podcasts) and Creatively Complicated is my Co-Hosted podcast with former WeAreXpats curator, Summer Rylander. If memory serves me right, Summer and I met during my last curation week, hurrah.  I love coffee, reading and listening to content like audiobooks, podcasts and YouTube videos, as well as absorbing art in many visual forms. So expect to see plenty of these things during my curation week.

As for the evil “where are you from” question: geographically I am from the U.S. but have been living overseas for the majority of the past 15 years. Places I have lived include Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan and now in China. My wonderful husband and I met and got married abroad, because it makes sense to move to Vietnam to meet and marry another American, right? Shanghai is often under the radar for many folks because of the misunderstood information that is generally shared by the media about China as a whole. I hope to show you some different sides of Shanghai this week. I look forward to your questions, comments and feedback on my tweets, before and after this week of curation. My website is and hosts all of my creative pursuits, including but not limited to the above mentioned podcasts.
