I am a school teacher by day, teaching English Language Arts at a middle school in Queens. At night I am a musician playing at various venues around town ((website hidden)). I have lived in NYC for 5 years now and in the studio apartment for 3.
On top of teaching I am working on my Ph.D. in philosophy and spend a great deal of time reading and writing for my dissertation. I have a cabin upstate and spend a lot of weekends up there writing.
This is why I feel I can offer my apartment for temporary visitors.
When I travel I like to either stay with a family or in a hostel. Most of my time is spent out in the city soaking up the culture. I am looking for visitors who are quiet and respectful and who want a private apartment so they won't be exhausted by hostel-living or drained by the expense of a hotel.
When stay at my place you will have it all to yourself. I am a hands-off host who will provide you with what you need and then get out of your hair.
