About Me

Hi, my name is Brenton Freeman! I’m a California transplant living in China. When I first landed here five years ago, I was a lost soul looking for a more interesting life. I had enough money to last a month and not much of a plan.  Now I have a wife, a son, and an English training school that I was able to open with my friends. It’s crazy how life works! 

I love my family, friends, reading, writing, traveling, politics, history, playing sports, and eating. My goal is to inspire others to live happier, healthier, more fulfilling lives. I look forward to using this site to share my experiences with the world! Enjoy!
