I'm a global traveler with an appreciation for architectural details and delicious street foods. I own a home in Seattle that I rent full-time, and have an apartment here in SF where I rent either the extra bedroom or the whole house
If you're considering coming as a guest without a full itinerary, I can give you the local scoop on a lot of great activities that you won't read about online or in your guide books. Or, if you know the area or have it all figured out, that's cool too.
As a guest, I know that Hosts make the best guests since we treat homes as if they were our own and take extra care to return everything as it was found.
When I'm not hosting, I might be out running, rowing (seattle), cycling, or wearing down the tread on my hiking boots. Either that, or perched on a neighborhood barstool catching up with the gang.
