About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to see the sights, meet people, cheell etc. without becoming broke

ABOUT ME

I grew up mostly in Gloucester, Massachusetts. I went to NYU for college where I studied Vocal Performance and French & Linguistics. I lived in NYC for a bit after school, then moved to Boston to study with a teacher and become slightly less broke. In 2014 I'm moving to Ohio (BGSU) to start a masters in Music (Voice).

PHILOSOPHY

the cliche version: do what you want, have fun, be nice, learn a lot..dont get too stressed out about stuff that doesn't matter too much in the grand scheme of life: such as missing trains and getting bad grades

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

spread the word, be a nice and tidy couchsurfer...my jam is usually the last minute requests since i never know my whereabouts to far in advance.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

finally hosting in NYC and at my Gloucester abode!

all wonderful experiences/hosts!

well there was one creeper but i don't think it was you.

Interests

always a tough one but i'll narrow it down to what's catching my fancy now -music of all shapes and sizes! learning and playing and listening -languages -city exploration -cooking/restauranteuring...general foodie activities -bikes! -going to the sea

Music, Movies & Books

always a futile thing for me to do..but i like most kinds of music except for country (like nashville star/"save a horse ride a cowboy"/tim mcgraw country), r&b, and terrible techno/dance pop..same goes for movies and books i think..if someone who is a massive fan of country, r&b, or shoddy dance music chances are I would not like their book or movie choices as well yes yes simply i like anything that doesn't suck

recent artsy things that i've liked:

how music works- david byrne eating animals- jonathan safran foer madame bovary master and margarita lucky peach monocle magazine

gypsy music!/folk songs found an excellent cd of Czech doo-wop at the dollar store astrid piazzolla in the hall of the mountain king! yes dolly parton line renaud tame impala well since i'm an opera major...OPERA: Manon, Prodana Nevesta, Eugene Onegin, greats like Rossini, R. Strauss, Puccini, Verdi

valerie and her week of wonders django unchained monty python's flying circus

OBSESSED WITH PODCASTS.

throwing shade monocle (everything) linguistics podcast the music show ABC wine for normal people bullseye with jesse thorn antique phonograph podcast black forest radio here's the thing

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I really enjoy ferries. Crossing in Tadoussac in Quebec, Istanbul going through the Bosphorous, view of Mt. Etna, into Sicilia from Calabria. Not so dramatic but beautiful!

Teach, Learn, Share

music stuff? i can play the piano (not like lang lang but decently), give advice on vocal music specifically: foreign language diction, interpretation etc. a voice lesson perhaps? happy to impart anything i've learned in school so far..

help with german/french, sort of help with slavic languages: Czech and Russian (yay cyrillic)

I enjoy learning more nerdy history about your city, languages, cultural events, history... frolicing?

Countries I've Visited

Canada, Mexico, Turkey, United Arab Emirates

Countries I've Lived In

Czech Republic, France, Guatemala, United States
