I'm an engineer from Chicago. I've lived in the Bucktown neighborhood for 4 years and the 5 years before that in Evanston, IL, where I went to school.
I love to travel (who'd have thought?) and have been able to travel to places where friends are living (Paris, Prague, Delhi, Buenos Ares). Since that's not always feasible, I've been enjoying this route to be able to feel at home whenever I travel now. I am a very respectful guest. I'm a bit of a wanderer when I travel, walking around and explorer where I visit but it's great having a more homey place to retreat to. I always leave the place at least as clean as when I arrived.
