About Me

I graduated from a forestry college in the Adirondacks last May and now go to tree school in Syracuse. College happens to be central to my life at the moment, and although I'm enjoying it as much as I can, I look forward to continuing my life outside of academia.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

The amazing network of interesting people! Duh.


Reading, conservation, hiking, bicycles, gardening, sharing food, friends, the smell of coffee, knitting the world's longest scarf, etc.

Music, Movies, and Books

TV: "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" is the best TV show. Hands down.

Literature: https://www.goodreads.com/elyna108

Music: Dawes, People Under the Stairs, Sufjan Stevens, Humble Braggers, etc.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I once helped bake this peach blueberry pie: http://flic.kr/p/cHcYxf

Teach, Learn, Share

I can explain the nitrogen cycle pretty well, and if you have a fish tank I'd be happy to help you set up an aquaponics system.
I'd really like to learn how to do a cartwheel.
