Welcome to my...
I've been with Oriental Outpost since almost the beginning 15 years ago. My main duties are Chinese translator and shipping manager.
We wear a lot of hats here, so sometimes I am the accountant, purchase manager, and artist relations manager.
In my spare time, I teach traditional Chinese dance, work as a freelance interpreter for business contracts, translate English books into Chinese, and teach Chinese language classes or tutoring.
I co-founded Oriental Outpost more than 15 years ago when I was teaching English in Beijing.
I am a nerd, web designer, adventurer, TV co-host in China, former Marine, and current U.S Soldier (one weekend per month).
Life is far from boring for me.
If you're looking to buy hand-painted Chinese artwork or Japanese calligraphy at discount prices, you've come to the right place. All artwork here is fair trade, and created by independent Chinese, Korean & Japanese artists.
While this artwork is of the highest quality available, my prices are much lower than those of most art galleries, around the world & even inside China, Japan & Korea. The reason is, all these artists are my personal friends that I have developed while living and traveling in China and Japan. There is no middle man because all the artwork is mounted in my workshop just outside Beijing.
