Home town: Minneapolis, MN.
Employed by AT&T Mobility (an American cell phone company).
Speaks: English & French
Countries outside the US visited: Mexico, Canada (5 or 6 times), France (4 times – 1 in the South & 3 in Paris). Of all the places I've visited, my favorite is Paris - the pulse of this city is strong, and the lifestyle inspiring. Even on an overcast day, Paris is alluring.
I enjoy taking walking tours of the cities I visit; this may include visiting galleries, historic sites, shopping centers, and art fairs (the Christmas Fair in Paris is my favorite). I also enjoy navigating the local transit systems and have a very good understanding of the Paris Metro system.
I have a life-long love for modern music, and have a habit of attending concerts by local bands as well as popular artists on tour. Some of these bands include Big Money Maker, Congopunq, Sanseverin, and Selim.
Airbnb was recommended to me by my friend Laura Tattoo; she stayed somewhere North of Père Lachaise in late 2011 and loved the experience. She said it's a great way to get to know a city as it really is, as opposed to the side shown to the tourists. That sounds like the ideal way to travel, in my humble opinion.
