Hey Everyone, My name is Bobby, I'm from New York City, by way of Santa Monica, California. I'll be visiting Shanghai through August. The purpose of my stay is for tourism, and to explore making a move to Shanghai full time. Living in New York City for so many years makes you want to explore what else is out there ... especially Asia!

Would love to meet people, make friends, and get to know the lay of the land from expats on the ground : )
