About Me

I used to do procurement for a Fortune 500 company, but always felt the outside world calling to me, so I switched careers and became a guide. I’ve always had a lot of foreign friends and easily connect with Western culture, which is actually how I realized I could be a great guide. During my time as a guide I’ve gotten to expand my friendships and knowledge of the world beyond what I ever dreamed, and I can’t wait to make friends with you when you visit!

My Experiences

I started my career as a free guide for Shanghai Greeters, because I wanted to improve my English and meet more people from around the world. Through this experience, I not only accomplished those things but also became a pretty great Shanghai tour guide in the process. As a Shanghai native, I love my city and get excited every time I have an opportunity to show it off to someone new.

Now that I am a certified professional tour guide, I have been able to expand both my abilities and offerings to include nearly every forgotten alley and local restaurant in Shanghai, and can take you to tons of places that other guides don’t even know exist! I wish that I could personally welcome every single newcomer to shanghai to make sure they get the best experience possible. So far, I have led over 200 visitors, families and friends.
