À propos de moi

CURRENT MISSION

finish my freaking dissertation

ABOUT ME

I'm originally from North Carolina (yep, still a few traces of the Southern accent), but I've lived in Connecticut, DC, Rhode Island, and now Norfolk, Virginia. I travel whenever I get the opportunity, and I studied for a year in Germany (Heidelberg) and Italy (Rome).

Pourquoi je suis sur Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

During my last sojourn in Europe, I was generously hosted by several others through couchsurfing, and now I hope to return the hospitality.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Couchsurfed twice in Switzerland-- both excellent experiences! Hosted once while living in Rhode Island and a few times in Virginia, also great fun.

Enseignez, apprenez, partagez

I wish I could teach Esperanto, but I've forgotten most of what I learned. Don't get me started on art history, since it's both my livelihood and my passion.

I want to learn your language (if I haven't already) and all your grandmother's secret recipes.
