I'm a 39 year old designer/illustrator/artist from Seattle. I've done quite a bit of travel in the last few years—including 401 days around the world in 2010-11. I also lived in London in 2012-13 and was fortunate enough to do some extended travels from there. AirBnB has proven to be a great way see new places. Given my great experiences I've had as guest, I'm excited to pay it forward and host [when I'm not traveling myself]!
