Hey there! Im Joe (the one on the right). Im an avid traveler, teacher, reader, and writer. I currently live in Hanoi, Vietnam and work as a part-time English teacher and web designer. Before, I used to live in Shanghai for around 4 years, learning Chinese Mandarin, teaching and working on startup projects. If Im not riding my trusty motorbike through crazy traffic you can find me at a local cafe working on sites, editing, proofreading or writing content.
