We are new to Airbnb, but certainly not new to hosting! We love meeting new people and traveling. As hosts, we are happy to have you! We love sharing our excitement for Oakland and the Bay.
I (Christy) am a grad student/artist/performer recently moved to Oakland from North Carolina. I love cooking, the outdoors, all varieties of art, and animals (though I have none). I bake almost daily and will certainly offer you some tasty treats! I perform circus and burlesque and can happily invite you to some events/let you know what's going on in the area. I'm also in grad school in San Francisco, working on my masters in Expressive Art Therapy.
I live with Andre, my wonderful partner, also from NC. He's a poker/casino dealer and has hilarious stories to share. He can also put you up to speed with local casinos and card rooms if that's something you're interested in.
Together, we are a dynamic duo! We enjoy eating everything, going to the gym/exercising, exploring the weekend flea markets, watching movies, spending time with great people, and traveling! Our 2013 highlights include numerous trips to the beautiful beaches of NC, attending (Andre's favorite!) the World Series of Poker in Vegas, and driving cross-country to move to Oakland, CA!
