I'm a laid back designer and educator who's looking to relocate to anywhere USA from Brooklyn, NY. I have many interests (art, music, theater, education, politics) and I'm looking to visit a few U.S. cities that offer excellent venues for all of these pursuits. I love great new fiction and non-fiction (I belong to two writing workshops as well as two book groups, in addition to the reading I do as an educator). Currently, I'm rediscovering my love of indie, classical, Black rock music and hip hop (I go through a love/hate thing with the latter). I love long walks, great food, and people watching. New York has all of that on lock but I refuse to believe it's the only American city I can live in. I am single, a non-smoker, well educated, but most importantly, I am a fair, open-minded, responsible person who loves meeting folks from all walks of life. People describe me as outgoing, funny, resourceful, and trustworthy. My relocation plans include moving with my best friend, who's basically my brother from another mother, so we're looking for accommodations for two.
I've hosted others, I was the fill-in for a friend who traveled frequently for work and used to rent his bedroom out via Airbnb, so I know how important it is to be punctual, tidy (I always clean as I go), and respectful of the house rules and others' privacy. I was responsible for greeting his guests, showing them the apartment complex's amenities, and then the penthouse suite where they'd be staying. I provided them with fresh linens and towels, continental breakfast (I did cook omelettes and home fries with toast on several occasions), and pointed them in the direction of great bars and restaurants in Brooklyn as well as my recoms for Manhattan-based must-sees. I even bought discount theater tix for several guests using my memberships at several venues. A few international visitors benefited from my teaching gig; I was able to find them English classes during their long stay. While I don't expect these extras, I do want to express that I understand what it is to be both a good host and a good guest.
So that's me, in a nut shell. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
