I'm a program manager at Idealist and an event producer for Everybody's Invited! I've lived in Portland for seven years now and I have an obscene amount of love for this city. If you'd like to come and stay with me, I'd be happy to show you why.
I also spend some time working out of Idealist's New York City headquarters. When I am travelling to the city, I typically book a place through Airbnb.
Using Airbnb has been quite rewarding -- nothing like making connections with people from across the country and all over the world!
