Some friends of mine have had great experiences with this site, so I figured I'd give it a try! It could be a great way to meet interesting people, and help them have a great time in New York with a great place to stay!
I am a California native, and I do environmental decision-making research at Columbia University. I enjoy meeting and spending time with people who are interested in exploring new places, exercising, eating well, and generally having a good time. :)
