About Me




I'm currently a PhD student at the University of Iowa. I'm vegan and I love to cook. I write poems.


Nietschean? Lacanian? A heady mixture of both?

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have couchsurfed but once (alas, alack). Being a phd student keeps me busy to the point of frustration. I have hosted a surfer and it was delightful. I hope to travel soon.


I read a lot of critical and literary theory. Seriously, I read so much critical theory I want to vomit...critically. I got my MFA in poetry from U of Montana, Missoula and I'm constantly trying to find time to write.

Music, Movies, and Books

I recently enjoyed the Swedish film, "Let the Right One In". I'm listening to The Blow obsessively. Movies I have seen more than three times and would watch again in a heartbeat: Solaris (the new one), Once, Amelie, Primer, In Bruge.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was a Fulbright Fellow to Denmark. That was really cool.

Teach, Learn, Share

I consider myself a resource for anyone looking to learn French, Danish, or vegan cooking (favorite dish: eggplant rollatini with vegan ricotta cheese). I'm trying to learn Icelandic.

Countries I’ve Visited

Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Sweden, United Kingdom

Countries I’ve Lived In

Denmark, France, Iceland, Switzerland
