I was born and raised in Hawaii, but have lived my entire adult life in San Francisco. Early in 2013 I sat down and wrote a list of around 100 things I want to do before I die. 58 of those things involved travel - doing a parkour run in Paris, dancing Argentine tango in Buenos Aires, and many more. I love having experiences in places different from my home, and making friends with locals wherever I travel.
Airbnb is my preferred way of finding a place to stay when traveling. It allows me to see what it's like to live in different places. As a guest, I'm quiet and practice the Boy Scout principle of leaving a place at least as clean as I found it.
