I am a Ph.D. student in Anthropology at Stanford University. I am in Amman conducting research on citizenship and kinship in Jordan. I am usually based out of San Francisco but am currently living in Amman, Jordan while doing research. I enjoy cooking/grilling on the terrace, watching old films and all HBO TV shows, reading (currently Saul Bellow), writing and/while hanging out about Amman cafes. I love having dinner parties and friends over. I am social but very respectful of other people's space. No real life motto -- as Airbnb seems to suggest I should -- other than, live and let live, I suppose. Ciao - E.P.
