Hi there! I'm Amy - a creative, outgoing, and friendly person always up to something interesting. I'm happy to open my home to travelers - to share stories, NY insider tips (I've been here 10 years) and kick back on the couch or in our lovely backyard over a glass of wine with new friends. I work as a theatre/drama teacher in the afternoons and spend my mornings growing my entrepreneurial ventures.
Outside of work, I tend to go to theatre, dance, yoga-class, make music, go out to dinner with friends. I enjoy getting out in nature. I love traveling and exploring - and take opportunities to try new restaurants and visit new neighborhoods in my own city as well. On Sundays, I sing with a gospel choir in Manhattan - you're welcome to come check us out while you're in town!
Things I love to eat- chocolate, garlic-y anything, wine, and all kinds of dumplings - Chinese Pot Stickers, Ravioli, Pelmeni, Gyoza, Vareniki... you name it, I love it! You will get major bonus points as a guest if you know how to make a delicious dumpling!
Stuff I love to talk about - spirituality, travel, art, philosophical ideas, business, creative ideas and projects...and people! i love to learn all about people and what lights them up.
My roommate and friend, Melanie, moved here from New Zealand via Chicago. She has great curiosity and energy. Melanie works in the travel industry and enjoys meeting new people. She asks great questions and is wonderful to spend time with. Melanie brings a fresh perspective to living in NY since she is newer here and will have different insights for you than my suggestions.
We both look forward to meeting you
