My self-summary
I'm a word nerd and linguist. I think I'm up to 15 languages I can say hello, thank you & goodbye in. I love New Zealand, rugby, foreign languages, and reading. I don't drive anymore, so busing around LA is always an adventure, whether I like it or not. I regularly teach ESL at the public library as well as individually to international students as a private tutor.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm back in school (again) taking classes to become a drug abuse counselor. I'm a freelance privatetutor- mostly English as a Second Language (ESL) as well as a majority of grade school subjects.
I’m really good at
Creating immediate rapport with strangers. Spanish, Japanese, photography, pottery, Russian Lit. and eating sushi. I'm great at remembering names (they're just vocab words to me).
The first things people usually notice about me
For the sake of honesty, I limp from a snowboarding accident in New Zealand. I may have physical deficits, but I'm still on point.
So I've found new ways to rock on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorites include Bukowski, Post Secret, classics such as Beowulf, Dostoevsky, Hesse, Huxley and Calvino. I dig Baraka, Usual Suspects, Lebowski, Amelie, and Murderball. I LOVE Townes Van Zandt, Wu-Tang, Bob Dylan, Wilco, Beatles, Charlie Mingus, Radiohead, Girl Talk, Leonard Cohen and The Shins.
I love to eat Thai the most, and then sushi,Mexican and Italian.
Not big on t.v.- except for @ Midnight,Freaks And Geeks, Jeopardy, 60 Minutes, and Breaking Bad.
Six things I could never do without
polyglot peers
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to get from A to B in LA without a car
On a typical Friday night I am
With family or friends
You should message me if
you are optimistic, fun and are comfortable rolling sans makeup. It helps if you rule at witty banter. NOT locker room banter
