Since I was a kid, travel has been very important to me. My mother instilled my desired to see the world, with camping trips in Northern Ontario (where I'm from), a trek across Canada and March Break vacations in the Caribbean. By luck I married an Australian lawyer who equally shares my love of travel and together we travel as much as we can, whether it be weekend trips to the U.S. or month long visits to Europe or Aus. When I'm not traveling, I work in Advertising/Marketing at a high tech company and enjoy working out, the outdoors, reading and cooking. My philosophy is to act like a traveler and not a tourist, preferring to see how a trip unfolds vs. scheduling every minute. I’m a big believer in personal recommendations so hence why I’m excited to give Airbnb a try.
