About the Host, Michele
I'm Italian (from Sardinia) , I live in Amsterdam since 2000.
I work as freelance 3D designer and project manager for retail marketing.
I love good food, always looking for typical restaurants in every place I go, and I enjoy cooking with or for my friends.
I like outdoor sports (running, cycling), traveling, and riding my motorbike in the country side with no destination.
After several years living in this city I'm still in love with it, Amsterdam is so full of culture and hidden beautiful spots to discover, there is always something happening, from concerts to exhibitions, and more.
I discovered airbnb one year ago, I enjoy hosting my guests, make them feel home and help them with tips and advices.
Looking forward of having you as my guest :-)
