About Me


To seek truth.


College student. I grew up in Austin. I'm a total geek. I write (both stories and poems), and always have index cards to jot down ideas or things of note. I'm a little obsessed with Sci-Fi, and my nose is usually buried in a book.
I've got two cats, and love them dearly.


Always ask questions. It makes life more interesting.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love travelling and learning from new people!


Science, science fiction and fantasy. Any book ever written-- I mostly read SF/F or horror, but I'll read anything that looks vaguely interesting. I especially love stuff about psychology, biology, and epidemiology.

Music, Movies, and Books

Books - Too many to list, but I'll put down some favorites. Mercedes Lackey, Patricia Briggs, MCA Hogarth, _Moonrise_ and _Moonwar_ by Ben Bova, _Darwin's Children_ by Greg Bear, Neil Gaiman, Anne McCaffrey, _When the Wind Blows_ by James Patterson, half of the original series Star Trek books.

TV shows/Movies - Daredevil, Firefly, Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog, Doctor Who (Baker-era and new), Torchwood, House, Bones, Numb3rs, Lie to Me, Quincy ME, Law & Order: SVU, Babylon 5, Star Trek, X-Files, Buffy, Angel... lots of ER shows and documentaries. I usually watch stuff on my computer, and rarely turn on the TV, though.

Music - Julia Ecklar, SJ Tucker, Leslie Fish, Kathy Mar, Andrew Bird, Voltaire, NIN, Perpetual Dream Theory, Sarah McLachlan, Lindsey Stirling, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, The Zombies, REM, Simon & Garfunkel, Tears for Fears, The Who... basically a bit of everything. I'm a sucker for violin.
