The past two years I have lived in Rochester, New York and before that I was living in Stockholm, Sweden where I taught English, Art, and Math. I also used to instruct Mixed Martial Arts classes for kids in exchange for my MMA training.
Now that it is Winter, I am snowboarding as much as humanly possible. Seeing live music and checking out art shows are also a large part of my life, as most of my friends are artists and musicians.
I aspire to travel to a new country this Summer, preferably to learn a new language. Someday I want to conduct research on second language acquisition in persons with impaired or disordered speech in their first language.
The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Circle, The Kite Runner, Fight Club
I love music, whether it's homemade jam, hip-hop (the real kind), classic rock, alternative rock, punk, indie, classical/baroque, orchestral, jazz, blues, funk, soul, etc.
Almost Famous, American Beauty, Rocket Science, October Sky, Fight Club, Into the Wild, Once, 500 Days of Summer
Planet Earth, Life, The Daily Show, Ted Talks, anything that can teach me something
Food: Indian, homemade creations, organic
