The master bedroom minus the closet is all yours and fairly spacious. Feel free to use our kitchen, dining room, living room (w/ N64), or balcony too. Nearby is a great park, a slew of restaurants, and a small coffee shop. Our cat will say hi too.
We're on the third floor with a great view of our tree-filled courtyard. If you read, we have tons of books. If you're into virtual reality, we have a Cardboard you could mess around with.
Общение с гостями
If you'd like a few recommendations for Pittsburgh, we can give you a hand. I'm a masters student at Carnegie Mellon, so I won't be around during the days. My partner Abby works, but her schedule moves around. Depending on your stay, you might have our place to yourself for most of the time.
Другие важные подробности
We do have a cat. His name is Watson. He's playful and friendly.
The bed comfortably seats two, but if you are traveling cheaply with a group, we're happy to accommodate more. There is plenty of floor space and, if it's free, a futon in the living room. We charge $5/guest after three guests to help manage utility costs.
Be kind. If you smoke, you'll have to do it outside. Quiet hours are from 11pm-7:00am (I need to sleep for school). Don't let our cat out. Lock the door behind you.
I'm a masters student at Carnegie Mellon University and also at the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute, studying Human Computer Interaction. Post-program, I want to be a user experience designer for virtual reality applications.
My background is in philosophy, design, how technology and people come together, math, and physics. Along the way I've built a bikeshare program, worked for systematic sustainability change, codesigned a couple of web apps, cofounded a startup, did research with brain computer interfaces and digital divide/differentiation problems, and wrote a children's book.
In my off time, I listen to music louder than necessary and ride my bicycle. I live with my partner, Abby, and our cat-child, Watson.
