I received my PhD from the Department of English at the University of Arizona, where I am currently employed as a lecturer. I have taught writing, rhetoric, and philosophy to university students as a lecturer at York University in Toronto Ontario.
My life partner and best friend, Ryan, is a programmer at University of Arizona. We have two pet birds, Ptichka and Starbuck.
I am an independent, organized, and responsible guest. My overall disposition is easygoing, easy to please, and quiet. My favorite writer is Tennessee Williams.
I am an early riser and like to enjoy my time in a new city by exploring, walking, and sightseeing. Mostly I like to stay active.
Side note about a review about me: I was never once asked to leave Ms. Linda Lipetz's space and obeyed all house rules. In fact, I provided her with $2100 for my one month stay in NYC, plus $25 (per night) for the week a female friend visited and another $25 (per night) for the week my godmother stayed with me. I loved being at NYU doing archival research for my doctoral dissertation.
I always treat everyone I encounter with respect. As long as I have a clean place to rest each night, I'm perfectly delighted. My life motto: What we do in life echoes in eternity.
