Martin PremoliGraduate Associate
Martin is from Southern California (by way of Argentina), and a grad student in the comparative literature department at Penn.
Though it was difficult to leave his family, the beaches, and his canine companions back west, Martin has found Philly to be a really wonderful alternative. Favorite Philly activities include biking along the schuylkill river, trying out any of the city's great restaurants and coffee shops, reading at Clark park, and going to concerts. On Penn's campus, he enjoys finding new reading spots and playing various sports (frisbee, soccer) at Penn park.
Swing by his room to talk about movies and music, to bake a pizza, or to enjoy a nice cup of coffee. Since his studies focus on contemporary American fiction, you'll likely find some books to add to your list.
