I'm originally from Versailles, KY but right now I'm living in Syracuse, New York. I'm a Master of Fine Arts candidate in the Syracuse University Creative Writing Program, so I'm here for two more years studying, writing and probably not reading enough. Before Syracuse I was living in Amman, Jordan as a Fulbright Research Fellow, and stayed there for about two years. Before that I lived in Cairo, while I was an undergrad at Bard College.
I'm using this little profile suggestion thing as a prompt, so I'll say that the five things I currently can't live without are my computer, this box of Girl Scout cookies sitting next to my computer (samoas, so good), I'm ashamed to admit it, but my iPhone, a notebook, and coffee. My favorite book is East of Eden, by John Steinbeck, OR More Than Human by Theodore Sturgeon. I love the TV shows Walking Dead, Shameless and 30 Rock.
My style of traveling is extremely laid back. I don't like being a ghost in the house, though I love exploring the city/environment so I tend to be out a lot. I think I'm generally anxious about keeping things clean/tidy, especially if I'm in an unfamiliar place. I haven't actually hosted anyone on Airbnb yet, so I can't really say what kind of host I am! Whenever I have friends visiting though I love to show them around, work without a schedule and let them direct the trip.
OK! I think that's it. I'll have my place up soon on my profile, so expect pictures soon!
