Bennett loves writing! guest post

I’m always willing to write extra articles for other sites to add to my own portfolio of work on this one. You can check out some that I have contributed to sites all over the web below, from written articles, photo galleries and contributions to part posts.

I recently won the Gold Award for China for 2013 over at ExpatsBlog.
