I'm from England and have been in California for the past 3 or so years, the last 2 for a Masters in anthropology at UC Davis. I will be coming to NYU in the fall, and I'm looking for long-term living situation in Brooklyn. Right now I'm looking for a place to stay while I find that spot!
I've lived in Belgium and travelled a lot in South America, including for fieldwork with an indigenous group in Peru and "free culture" hackers in Argentina. So, I also speak good French, Spanish, and Dutch (and can get by in a few others).
