I am passionate about Detroit, urban design, public transit, biking, art and DIY. I am in graduate school for urban planning, but have many hobbies and interests. I am a member at the local hackerspace, OmniCorpDetroit.
I love good (mostly vegetarian) food, meaningful conversations, local culture and maps. I also love some good blues and jazz which is in abundant supply in Detroit. I used to live in Mexico and also Chile, so I especially have a soft spot in my heart for latino culture and Mexican / Chilean cultures in particular.
I am also very passionate about Detroit! I enjoy seeing the changes happening here every day. I have so many good friends that are living their dreams, starting farms, triple bottom line food businesses, working in social justice, urban planning, and creating amazing art projects.
I am currently working in high performance/research computing at Wayne State University and am rehabilitating homes in my old neighborhood, Jefferson Chalmers. In what spare time I have I dabble in art, gardening, cooking, and hackery things at OmniCorp Detroit. I am a lover of travel, music, biking, dancing, books, and I try my best to stay informed about current events.
We are laid back, flexible and tidy, and we like to host people that are the same.
Let us know what brings you to town, we enjoy hearing why people come to visit Detroit.
