Meeting and connecting with the myriad of travelers to New York City who come from all walks of life!
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 learning about the cultural differences of people from all around the world.
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!
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.
linux, computers, oldies, funk, television, film, british comedies, languages, french, japanese, linguistics, phonetics, accents
Music, Movies, and 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.
