Join Couchsurfing to see Anca & Joe’s full profile. It’s free!
I live in Seattle with Joe, my husband, and our two cats. We are both computational linguists and are working in the field of speech technology. We love talking about our jobs (natural language processing), watching movies, going for walks and playing board games.
I lived in Romania and Japan before moving to the US. I felt culture shocks and reverse culture shocks so many times while traveling between Romania/Europe and Japan, that I feel nothing can shock me anymore. But alas, the world is big :)
Joe is from Brooklyn (Coney Island), but he lived all over the South for the past 10 years, including 6 years in Florida. He likes football, whiskey and a good steak.
We are just starting our careers in Seattle and we are excited about what the future will bring us. And we are definitely excited about meeting people from all over the world, right on our sofa!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I love staying at a person's house when I'm visiting a new city. A warm house that is lived by somebody is so much better than an empty hotel room.
This is why I want to offer this to others, and CS is a great means to do it!
I surfed and hosted whenever I had a room available since I joined CS. I met some great people through CouchSurfing that I still keep in touch with.
Language and technology, reading, going on walks in the neighborhood and exploring new places.
