I work as a Medical Receptionist at a 24-hour veterinary emergency room, so as the job requires, I love animals. I am very fond of classic cocktails and great food. I'm a history buff, and I love to make people laugh.

When I travel, first and foremost, I like to have a comfortable, familiar place to go when each day ends. I seek an authentic experience more-so than one depicted on the Travel Channel (No Reservations aside). I am a big homebody, so this year I'm working on Adventures in the word "Yes." I want to challenge myself to try new things.
As a guest, I pick up after myself, am happy to sit down and engage with my host or relax alone, maybe take a nap between adventures. I'm always looking for a great, local cocktail bar/diner/dive/amazing food experience and try not to judge a book by its cover-- but if a place looks awesome, it's probably awesome.
I'm new to Airbnb, so this should be a good experience.
