I'm a Ph.D. Candidate in business and travel frequently to attend conferences and workshops. I am also a husband and father of two wonderful daughters. I'm usually looking for a quiet room where I can write and work while I'm traveling, but I also enjoy meeting new people and getting a new perspective on life. Back in my 20s (I'm now in my 40s) I hitch-hiked around the world for a year doing the "Airbnb" thing by invitation before the internet made it easy. My wife is from Germany and so we spend a fair amount of time traveling in Europe with the kids. I'm tidy, respectful, and an easy-going guest.
