Originally from Connecticut, I've lived in Manhattan since 2007. I love the city...the live music, the food, the nightlife, the art museums, etc. I work at a company that develops software for the commercial real estate industry. I'm new to Airbnb but love the concept so I thought I'd give it a shot. I travel as much as I can -- most recently I backpacked solo around Colombia and went to Thailand for a couple of weeks with friends.
