About Me


wanderlust and lipstick


I am a grad student in the humanities. I am writing my dissertation on Italian film. I am sociable and enjoy meeting new people who can share their life experiences with me. I would define myself as sarcastic and occasionally cheesy, which I love being. I am originally from Milan, Italy. I moved to Philly 6 years ago for school and I haven't left yet. I hope one day to become a cool professor in some cool college. I love teaching too.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have been a guest and host a number of times. Some of them have been very positive, wonderful, life-changing experiences. I have also met a few fellow couch surfers along the way and I have enjoyed their company.


I like to live an active life and meet stimulating people. I dance salsa on a regular basis, plus I do yoga and go to the gym almost everyday. I enjoy movies and books a lot and, of course, traveling. I like to be always on the move, whether in Philly or somewhere else. I also like photography, fashion (when I was little I wanted to be a fashion designer!) and every once in a while I dream of leaving academia to become a make up artist.

Music, Movies, and Books

I love movies. Some of my favorite directors are Fellini, Rossellini, Lars von Trier, Truffaut, Malick, etc. I like books even though nowadays I mostly read for school. I have a soft spot for American literature: Melville, Faulkner, and Hemingway above everybody else. My top ten also includes Tolstoy, Nabokov, and Celine. As for music, I used to be really into indie rock and I still enjoy it even though I don't have time to keep up with it.
