i am studying linguistics, and recently finished my first year in a phd program. i've always been pretty curious and passionate about certain things. i tend to hyper-focus.
i also really love music. i was in a band called "the spots" before i moved to chicago. we were pretty bad. i played keyboard. one of my favorite pastimes is playing music with old friends from highschool---i like playing drums and guitar, even though i haven't had any formal training in them.
i have always really liked to cook, and i used to work in restaurants, in the kitchen, in order to make money over the summer. i got pretty good at it, but right now, i am a bit out of practice.
