I'm originally from Chicago. I moved to Los Angeles shortly after college. I've live within a 5 mile radius of my current house for over 30 years. I really love this neighborhood. I'm a pretty easy going person. I love to cook, and have dinner parties. I am the president of a small non-profit AIDS organization. I have been an AirBNB host for 3 years. It has been a remarkable experience. I love meeting new people and making new friends. I have always had friends all over the world. It has been great expanding my network. I love hiking and trekking. My favorite sports are scuba diving and white water rafting. I've visited six of the seven continents. I'm not sure if I will try to go to Antartica. I don't like the cold.
