Self-employed carpenter with emphasis on historic restoration work and house repairs. Artisan furniture maker, textile collector and weaver, fluent in Spanish. Activist for immigrant rights. Interested in: Andean cultures, Japanese design, found objects, economics, unscripted travel to offbeat places and less developed countries. I love foreign films, especially Iranian films. Also I enjoy swimming, cycling and Zumba. Addicted to starting the day with the NY Times.
Travel style: Pack light, take just a backpack wherever I go. When using airbnb, I often book with female hosts, because I'm not very conversant in a lot of guy topics like spectator sports.
I'm drug free, non-smoker, straight, vegetarian, agnostic myself, although it's of zero importance to me if the person hosting me is any of those things. Clean, no drama guy respectful of other peoples spaces.
