About Me


Find housing in Carbondale, IL for Fall 2009


I'm a suburbanite midwesterner from Northeast Ohio. I went to school in Cleveland where I majored in philosophy. In the following September (2007), I moved to Boston to continue studying philosophy. I just finished my M.A., and now I am on my way to Carbondale, Illinois for my Ph.D. Basically the last few years have amounted to an increasingly large stack of books on my desk.

In my spare time--what remains of it at least!--I collect languages (mostly dead ones--Latin, Ancient Greek, Anglo-Saxon) and I build computers.


I've been working through this for years. I'll get back to you.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


My girlfriend couchsurfed in Lyon, France and when I went to visit her last Spring she recommended I give it a shot based on her experience.--Here I am!


Some of my activities include Ancient Greek, arguing, banter, conversation, debate, games, German, Latin, poetizing, philosophy, skating, the web, writing.

My primary interest is, of course, thinking too much
