Bonjour! I'm Katie, originally from Los Angeles, CA and currently living it up in the tech hub of Silicon Valley. When I'm not working as an online community manager, I dream of trips to France and across the US, but I also enjoy sipping a tasty coffee with friends, seeing movies, being a foodie, crafting, & discovering new Belgian beers.
So far, Airbnb has helped me with my dream of traveling to Paris, which I did in fall of 2011. I also used Airbnb to take an amazing solo trip to New Hampshire's lakes region and Salem, MA in fall of 2012--I highly recommend each area. In general, I'm a neat freak guest, very quiet [unless you want to chat!], and very respectful of others and their spaces. I think of my own home as my sanctuary and will hold myself to those same standards when visiting yours. Typically, I aim to be out of the house sightseeing and enjoying the local culture, and I'm not a night owl during my vacations. My goal is to get to know whatever town I'm in, and Airbnb provides my most basic comforts along the way.
