I love to travel and explore new places! I recently moved back to the US from Shanghai after three years where I was able travel to some amazing places both within China and throughout Asia.
I currently work as an editor in ESL publishing and before that was a journalist in the metro Detroit area. (I also did the standard English teaching stint in China).
As a guest I'm pretty low key and out and about most of the time. I'm not a night owl - early mornings are more my thing and I'm usually in by 10 pm. I've stayed in some pretty gnarly hostels before, but those days are behind me and I like clean, quiet environments. If you have a furry pup in your home I will love him like my own :)
5 things I can't live without: coffee (I've tried to live without it), Instagram, a good song in my head (I'm Matt Mays' biggest fan!), a book that is either so good it keeps me up or so dull it puts me to sleep, and my passport.
When I'm not traveling, I love seeing my favorite bands in great Detroit venues like St. Andrew's Hall or at outdoor festivals, trying new restaurants and In the winter I love snowshoeing and in the warmer months I love to get out on the water or go hiking.
