I am from Pasadena, CA. I am the proprietor of a legal marketing and consulting firm When I am not working, I love spending time outdoors. I am an avid hiker, snowboarder and mountaineer. I also, enjoy adventure racing, backpacking and other active travel. I love AirBnB because of the variety of choice it offers for lodging, but mostly because the few times that I have used I have met some of the warmest, nicest people around. It's nice to way to travel and see a place without feeling like a tourist.
