About Me

I'm currently working contract jobs in tech; my background is in linguistics which is a field I'm very passionate about. I'm really interested in the intersection of machines and communication. I love music and reading/writing.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

I love to meet new people and explore about different places and perspectives.
I'd love to host as well but at the moment I'm unable to, but if you're in the area I'd love to meet up and show you around.

I've met so many amazing people through couch surfing; this is such a great community. I'm excited to meet more people and hear about their lives and travels.

Interests

My interests include: writing, traveling, linguistics, technology, politics.

Music, Movies & Books

Some favorite authors/poets: Wallace, Kafka, Kundera, Barthelme, cummings, Galeano, Borges, Plath

My introduction to music was through a lot of post-punk stuff which sort of lead to a long love of new wave and shoegaze (Joy Division, New Order, Talking Heads, Cocteau Twins, mbv, etc). I spent some of my teen years in Austria, where I got interested in club music/electronic music and really love classic house and techno. Lately, I've been listening to a pretty diverse mix of music; I love hearing new things and learning about people who making interesting art.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Hitchhiking around France and Spain!
