About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Mastering stillettos and incognito people-watching

ABOUT ME

I was scouted last month--this is quite a departure from my life in Kentucky as a physics student, some time construction worker, Quick Recall/Quiz Bowl coach, and tutor/volunteer [of what feels like all the childen of Earth in music, math, and laws of the universe]. I feel really weird without the weight of a hot coffee in my hand. I was raised on a farm. I try, a la Margret Thatcher, to conceal my southern-crunchy-draw but, when I get sleepy, all bets are off. It's my ultimate ambition to become an architect. I am intensely neat. Sometimes, no matter how much I try to deny it, the only thing I can think about is Paris. . . and doughnuts with sprinkles.

PHILOSOPHY

For those who read to much, I'm a Alexei Alexandrovich Karenin type, Levin sympathizer, former Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov--you know, like, whatevz.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I volunteer[ed] a ton in my hometown (Big Brothers Big Sisters and Habitat for Humanity); all I can really do in Manhattan, for now, is conjure giggles in others.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Polar!
I've met some fascinating, loving people. I've met some banal and arrestingly base folks. Meh.

Interests

High fashion; saving the youth of America; Russian and German Literature; abstract expressionist art; Vladimir Ashkenazy; Vladimir Horowitz; doing a lot of math in my head; speaking horrible French; marathoning; new architecture; cement; yoga; ballet; animals; cartoons; backpacking and wilderness camping; vegan foods (with emphasis on wine and coffee o__O)

Music, Movies & Books

Brief Encounter; Gattica; Clueless; All About Eve; Charles Mingus; Chopin; Rachmaninov; Dostoesvsky; Huxley; Wilde;

and, Tolstoi, naturally.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I'm kinda awesome at Chopin.

Teach, Learn, Share

Piano, math, and construction. I'd love to improve my in-a-vacuum French.
