Meriden, Connecticut, United States · Member since September 2011

Hi! My husband, Dylan, and I have been hosting and traveling with Airbnb for a few years. It has been a great way to meet new people and the extra income helps us to keep our house well maintained.

A bit about us: I completed my PhD in Biochemistry at Wesleyan University and am now doing research in a big lab at Yale University where I study the structure and dynamics of the proteins that regulate neurotransmitter release in the brain. I also make soap and other natural skin care products in my free time and I sell them at ladybugsoapworks on Etsy. My other hobbies are making wheel thrown pottery (I am a big Raku fan), gardening, working out, and traveling.

Dylan is a programmer who has been making smartphone video games for a few years. His two main games are Space Miner Wars and Book of Heroes. You should go check them out and give them a try! Dylan is also very dedicated to martial arts, playing (and making) video games, and has also been making wheel thrown pottery for a while. You will see our pieces throughout the house.
