About Me

As a graduate student in Ethnomusicology (anthropology of music), I like nature, travel and world cultures. I am vegan and love all animals, so naturally I have 3 cats, Smokey, Zaporra (po po), and Drew Pickles.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

Being a graduate student is not lucrative. Doing what I can to get by, making some friends along the way.
