About Me

CURRENT MISSION

figure out my life

ABOUT ME

I love ice cream and climbing trees and buildings. I believe in living for living. I don't talk about math that much, but I get very excited about it and computational biology and enjoy talking about advancements in STEMs fields as well as how they link to postmodern theory. Sometimes I think I'd like to work in a museum some day.

PHILOSOPHY

everything gets better

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I surfed a lot when I was in undergrad, now that I have my own place in grad school I think I will be a lot less likely to travel and surf, but I get to host now, and am looking forward to it a lot.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

they've been rather fantastic so far, I'd say. Everyone I've met has been incredibly interesting and unbelievably selfless about their time and energy.

Interests

Math, Ice cream, social justice, self tracking

Music, Movies & Books

Music: Radiohead, Muse, Phoenix, Talib Kweli, The Glitch Mob, the xx, Blue Scholars, Bambu, Macklemore, TV on the Radio. Basically political hip hop and electronic/hipster music.

Movies: Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, MEAN GIRLS (I can quote every single line of that movie)

Books: Infinite Jest, Sophie's Choice

One Amazing Thing I've Done

the 2008 Olympics in Beijing

Teach, Learn, Share

-it's really unnecessary to bring your laptop/netbook anywhere
-If you have a number x that ends with 5, for example 15 or 65, then you can easily figure out what x^2 is; it is just x*(x+1) followed by 25. Hence, 15^2 is 225, and 65^2 is 4225! Neat, eh? If you know any algebra the reason why is not that difficult, but it's still fun trivia.

Countries I've Visited

Belgium, France, Netherlands, South Korea, Spain, Thailand, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In

China, France, United States
