I'm 23 years old, and live in Jerusalem, Israel with my girlfriend. We're both studying in the Hebrew University here. I'm studying cognitive science and linguistics, so it's nice to have an outlet for my creative side and I love finding reasons not to do my course work, so swap-bot is very useful!
I like ATCs and music CD swaps mostly, but am happy to try my hand at other swaps if they catch my interest.
I also love cooking, so I like recipe swaps, when I find them.
I like drawings, painting, sketches and collages. Feel free to go wild with themes, styles, colours, medium and subject matter. I like more or less everything hand-done and would much rather you send something you've put some thought and effort into and made your own.
I love reading, listening to music, and playing around on the computer. I read pretty much everything, from Douglas Adams, George R. R. Martin and Terry Pratchett, through Barbara Kingsolver, Audrey Niffeneger and Jose Saramago to Lewis Carroll, John Steinbeck, Jane Austen and Shakespeare. Yeah, I'd say pretty much anything!
Music wise my tastes aren't much narrower. Favorite bands and artists would include The Rolling Stones, Counting Crows, Jethro Tull, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Arctic Monkeys, Elvis Costello, Offspring, Cake, Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Miles Davis, Radiohead and many, many others. Less keen on trance, electronic and rap music, but I'm happy to listen and learn from whatever is sent my way in music swaps.
Post to and from Israel can be a little sluggish, so sorry if it takes a while for the swap to get there or for me to rate. I promise to send it as early as possible and to rate as soon as I receive! Let me know if it hasn't arrived, and if necessary I'll re-send.
