For over a decade, I've been an engineer in the Bay Area. Recently I've transitioned to providing Career Services for engineers because I love helping people find meaningful work. I've lived here in San Francisco for 13 years now and have been a host on Airbnb for 5 years now. I love seeing the city and this ever-changing Mission neighborhood through the new eyes of my guests.
I met my Husband while scuba diving in Indonesia. We plan to dive the rest of the world together-- most recently we visited La Paz to see the sea lions and encountered thousands of migrating devil rays!
If I'm staying at your place, hopefully my listing gives you assurance that I have a place I respect and will bestow that same respect onto your place.
