Connect with people around the world and learn languages
I've just graduated from the University of Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada. I'm currently considering pursuing a Master's program in Linguistics in Winnipeg, as well.
My first real travel experience was the summer of 2013. I spent some time in Eastern Europe for an archaeological dig and it was fantastic. I am now traveling Western Europe with my sister (April/May/June 2015).
While at home, I spend my time being involved with music (listening, or playing bass clarinet/alto saxophone/piano), biking, watching movies, and generally being silly. I love: tetris, piano, bonfires, cats, Todd Rundgren, climbing trees, Kyle MacLachlan, old video games, The X-Files, baseball, taking the bus, going to the beach, and Halloween!

Music, Movies, and Books
I'm a big fan of cult classics and more off beat movies. I love Army of Darkness, The Burbs, Bubba Hotep, and a lot of David Lynch (Twin Peaks, Blue Velvet, Mulholland Dr., Dune, Eraserhead).
I don't get to read as much as I'd like and I always have a lengthy list of books to read. Some of my favourites include: Lolita, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, To Kill a Mockingbird, Of Mice and Men, Henderson the Rain King, and The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole.
As for music, some of my favourite artists include: Todd Rundgren, Stevie Wonder, Electric Light Orchestra, The Beatles, Haruomi Hosono, Roy Orbison, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Wilco, T. Rex, The Cocteau Twins, Charlie Byrd, Simon and Garfunkel, Rodriguez
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've participated in two archaeological excavations. One was a palaeolithic site in a cave on a mountainside in Southern Serbia, and the other was a historical excavation of a German POW camp from WWII in Manitoba, Canada.
