I am a cartographer living in Kansas City. I love riding bikes, meeting people, live music, fresh vegan pastries, reuse, photography, city life, sustainable living, social justice, wayfinding, and challenges.
If you stay with or host me, you'll likely get to meet Chico, as well. We've been partners in crime for years, and I love sharing my space & time with him. He's a visual artist hailing from St. Louis. Close to home, he can be found painting or drawing, tending our garden (before transforming it into a vegan feast), skateboarding to the coffee shop, or doing masonry or handiwork. Away from home, he's always game for new adventures. We both love cooking, but when we travel, we're off to find the best restaurants in town.
We're both goofy night owls, and we love a well-crafted mug of coffee or beer, especially with good conversation. We are both careful with our things and with others', and while we are relaxed housekeepers and hosts, we enjoy and understand having nice things and keeping space that is clean and inviting to friends. We both have great respect for others' homes and belongings; we clean after ourselves and leave things as we found them. If we both have a day free, you'll probably find us sipping coffee on the balcony, then biking off to find new sights and smells. If we visit your city, I'd love any help finding bicycles to ride during our stay!
