Hey, I'm Jb!
Chicago, Illinois, United States · Member since August 2011

Conceptual artist loves to explore...

I've traded homes with artist friends from all over the USA and Europe and have shared spaces with dear friends and acquaintances long before airbnb was created (airbnb now expands those possibilities!). I think this is by far the most interesting and rewarding way to travel and experience some "there" there. I look forward to hosting and staying.

I live in a 1880's workers 2-flat converted to an apartment on the second floor and art studio on the first floor in the Historic Pullman neighborhood in Chicago, IL. I have a small organic food garden in the back and love to cook/prepare; raw, vegan/vegetarian, organic/healthy/gourmet - I'm not obliged to any specific diet so I enjoy lots of different foods and flavors. I try and learn one new thing a year - last year it was learning restoration of 1880's slate roof/facades with a craftsman and architect friends. This year, bringing artists to Pullman and Pullman to artists. Next, maybe exploring more permaculture ideas/trends.

I have an absolutely lovely girlfriend who travels with me whenever possible (Amy). She is a social delight and has a wonderful way with people/cultures (like insisting on learning/speaking Spanish when we explored Spain). She offers a genuine ease with meeting new people and a welcoming charm. You'll like her.

Looking forward to meeting you...
