As a Host:
San Francisco native, born and raised. as you can see from my reviews, I love to be a tour guide (or just help make sure you have a wonderful time in San Francisco). I have also met many great people who have stay with me through AirBnB. I'm also always happy to give suggestions, or a full itinerary with restaurants, bars, music venues, lounges and local attractions (tourist and local).
As a Traveler:
I've been very fortunate throughout my life to have many close friends live in some very amazing places. And just as they enjoy visiting me in San Francisco, they return the favor when I'm abroad. I've been all over, from SE Asia where my little sister is a journalist, to Norway with my amazing cousin, to close friends throughout western Europe. I have lived in Hawaii (Waikulu, Maui), Los Angeles, and Washington D.C. When i travel, I love to experience cities the way locals do, not like a tourist (as I grew up in a very touristy town, I've always enjoyed living the way locals live, not spending my whole trip at monuments and museums).
As you can tell from my reviews from my many many guests, I keep a very clean place, take care of all the details (I've picked up for free many people when flights were delayed or they came in during my lunch hour) and take a lot of pride in my hometown of San Francisco. I want to make sure both friends and visitors ALWAYS have a wonderful time here.
UPDATE: I got a long term roommate (ironically, someone I hosted through AIRBNB! and will go back to hosting my place in San Francisco's Marina district in 6 months)
