I am a Professor of Computer Science at a local college in Boston.
When I am not grading papers or preparing lectures, I am cycling, hiking, snowshoeing, skiing or traveling.
I signed up to host guests on Airbnb because:
1) I have 2 extra rooms that otherwise sit empty
2) I love to travel myself
3) I keep my home clean and guest ready anyway, so it doesn't take too much time out of my busy life to prepare for new arrivals...
4) I love to be a hostess - to make people feel comfortable and welcome.
