About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Currently planning a Trip to Japan and Korea in May/June, and trying to find ways to make it fun and interesting by meeting new people!

ABOUT ME

I'm from eastern Massachusetts, but I'm currently living in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan with a job in the TV industry. In addition to my interest in TV, I love linguistics (especially phonetics), accents, and learning languages, as well as finding out about the differences in cultures of people all around the world.

I work very different hours, as my schedule changes all the time, so I may be available at drastically different times.

PHILOSOPHY

I feel that life is too short to just stay in one place. Traveling is the best way to open up one's mind to all that there is in the world. Unfortunately, I feel a bit odd when traveling on my own, so that's why I love to meet up with locals who can give me a deeper understanding of a place- instead of just walking around alone doing touristy things. If you feel the same way, then we should meet up!

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

While I was in Marseille, Paris, and London, I met up with other travelers as well as locals. Now I actually live in a place where people like to travel to, so I'm hoping to meet up with others and show them around the city! I unfortunately do not have a couch to offer, though I'd like to eventually!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I started with CS in August of 2011 while I was in Marseille. I met up with almost 10 different people while in France, and have met up with a few travelers in NYC.

Interests

linux, computers, oldies, funk, television, film, british comedies, languages, french, japanese, linguistics, phonetics, accents

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to list. I'll just say that I love funk, jazz, and classic rock, as well as science fiction and comedies.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

As of now, it is Yellowstone National Park. Really an amazing place to visit, with mind-blowing displays of nature at every turn.

Teach, Learn, Share

I know a fair amount about the history of television and how TV works, and am pretty good when it comes to troubleshooting computer problems.

I'm also very interested in phonetics, so if we ever get into a discussion about languages or accents, I'll probably start using terms that may not make any sense if you're not familiar with phonetics. Just either tell me to explain what I mean, or just to shut up- :P I know that I can get overly enthusiastic about it, and that not everyone finds it as interesting as I do.

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Italy

Countries I've Lived In

France, United Kingdom, United States
