About Me


Trying to figure out a clever way to reference "Caledonia Mission" in this space


I did a chemistry internship in Germany and had a fantastic time working and traveling around Europe. Now I'm back in the Boston area and doing more chemistry, but this time with baboons. I'll be starting graduate school in the fall.

I usually carry a cup of coffee or tea around with me (although it's been a lot more tea these days since I switched to decaf), and I will try pretty much any food that you put in front of me. I worked at a radio station in college, and I am constantly lamenting the fact that I don't go to enough concerts.


I like asking questions.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


Mostly as a surfer (so far), but hoping to open up my house back in the States as well.

I like using my leisure time to work on various projects. Right now it's playing guitar and taking ceramics classes.

Music, Movies & Books

I dance almost exclusively to music that was made before 1970. I have a soft spot for children's literature and a potentially unhealthy obsession with the New Yorker. Sometimes I force myself to read famous books from the 1800s.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I've watched the sun rise in a lot of very different places (from Joshua Tree to the Simien Mountains) and it's always the best.
