About Me


school, languages, run, fun


I do too many things...but I can't give anything up. we'll probably get along.


funny, when I read "why do you live your life?" it sounds like, "are you sure living is a good idea?" I'm just trying to find the right balance between what I should be trying to control and what I shouldn't be trying to control.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have both hosted and surfed...I've also joined in plenty of CS-hosted events in Montreal and other cities


everyone that I have hosted and surfed with has been great...I've met a lot of interesting people thanks to that as well as CS-sponsored events


philosophy, languages, competitive running, going to the occasional concert, trying new things

Music, Movies, and Books

I like at least a couple things from pretty much every musical/film genre...as far as books go, I mostly am too buried in my academic texts to go beyond them, but I decided recently I need to start forcing myself to find time to read literature (so I'm open to suggestions!).

most of the movies and books I watch/read these days aren't in english, because I feel guilty doing things in english all the time.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

watched (in person) galen rupp run a 3:50 mile on an indoor track; the second-fastest indoor U.S. mile ever.

otherwise, I'm not sure what to say, I've seen a lot of old parts of Europe that made me feel like I was touching history in a way that I've never experienced in North America

Teach, Learn, Share

languages! I'm happy to help and to learn. I suppose I could also tell you a few things about philosophy and/or competitive running if you want to know.
