Join Couchsurfing to see Jansyn’s full profile. It’s free!
I grew up in Western Massachusetts (Amherst/Northampton) and now I live in Brooklyn, NY. I am pursuing my graduate degree in Environmental Policy and Sustainability Management at The New School. I love talking about food systems and waste management! So fun.
I like to stay active by hiking, biking, skiing, kayaking, and going for the occasional jog. I love cities and forests. And lakes.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
I have couchsurfed once before.
I am traveling and need to save money (to pay ridiculous NYC rent prices while I'm in grad school).
Music, Movies, and Books
I'm reading a lot of feminist literature right now. And environmental stuff for school and pleasure. I read cookbooks/blogs all the time. I read the newspaper every day. I prefer television over movies. I like blues/americana music and bagpipe music.
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I lived in a Tibetan refugee settlement in Ladakh, India in high school. The Himalayas were amazing. As were the people.
I also played in the World Bagpipe Championship in Scotland when I was in high school.
I was wayy cooler in high school.
Teach, Learn, Share
Let's discuss how to overthrow capitalism and corporations. And then let's go shopping.
