I live in San Jose, CA (and have a house in Merida, Mexico), work in software sales (too boring to elaborate on, trust me on this...) and have traveled extensively around the world. (favorite place: Bali).
I am a good guest, friendly but respectful of people's "space." Love animals. If you are open to sharing information about your city or area then I am totally open to hearing about it. I am neat and not noisy and can bring my own sleeping bag if you want.
I love to cycle, read, travel and go to movies. Architecture is my passion and I travel all over the world looking at great buildings. Finding good conversations on politics or current events is also fun. My favorite book is "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand.
I usually travel solo, and don't really like hotels -- too impersonal. I usually stay in B and B's or homestays and I was thrilled to find this website!
