Hello! I'm a former journalist turned social media manager who lives in Chicago. I started using Airbnb a few years ago when I needed a last-minute place to stay in NYC and now I prefer it over hotels. I like to travel as often as possible and have studied abroad in both Italy and India. I now travel for work a bit as well, and spent a lot of 2013 traveling with the NASCAR circuit.
When I'm not working I'm usually reading for my book club and doing outdoorsy things like hiking, skiing, and stand up paddling.
When I stay places I'm usually pretty quiet and very clean (aside from my suitcase because I'm bad at packing!). I love staying with hosts who like to chat about where they live and I always appreciate suggestions on things to do in your area.
