I'm an easy going software engineer living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I love traveling to new places in the US and abroad because of the people you meet along the way. I've never been much of a hotel person, they are too socially isolating. I'd much rather share accommodations in hostels or bed & breakfasts and make new acquaintances. I've traveled to nearly every continent this way (except Antartica) and I think I'm better off for it.
Unless I'm really off on an epic adventure, you'll probably find me with my laptop, a great cup of coffee and something interesting to read. I thoroughly enjoy the outdoors, and quite, comfortable spaces to come back to after a day of exploration.
I don't ask much from my hosts, just a decent place to sleep after a long day!
