Find the things that are right, for right now
I'm from Portland, Oregon, and have been living in Vienna for three years, currently doing a bachelor's degree in translation. I like to play the violin and sing, and always look forward to meeting other musical people!
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I've hosted and have tried a few times to couch-surf. I like the groups and sometimes use them to find things around Vienna that I'm interested in.
Tried to couch-surf in Prague and Budapest...no luck finding hosts :( Have met lots of couch-surfers and even been friends with some. (gasp)
I play the violin and guitar, sing, write music, cook, (eat), go out occasionally, like to hear live music, read, and study.
Music, Movies, and Books
The Solitaire Mystery, The Monkey-Wrench Gang, TV on the Radio, Joni Mitchell, Belle and Sebastien, Vashti Bunyan, Bartok.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I once drove a boat out into the middle of Lake Tahoe (a very, very deep clear lake on the California/Nevada border) and jumped out to swim in the water. It was so clear and so deep that I thought there might never be a bottom down there.
Teach, Learn, Share
I can share some musical instruction. I can share my language skills - I have some experience teaching English. In exchange I'd love to hear other styles of music and learn other languages from you :)
