Live in Maine, run a web design and internet marketing company. Married, two daughters.
Absolutely lovely guest....welcome any time.
I've known Rich for a number of years, first meeting him in San Diego during an Internet marketing conference, and have many mutual friends. We keep in touch cross-country via social media mostly these days. I recommend Rich because he's a great guy that will do his best to take care of Airbnb members.
I stayed at Rich's house during a conference in Maine and i couldn't have had more fun. My room was comfy, and Rich and his family were more than accommodating during my stay.
Rich is the type of host who makes sure that his guests are comfortable, and will do anything you need to get you that way if you're not. The cool thing is that they do it without being 'in your face', so if you're the type that likes your space; you can stay here too and feel comfortable.
I recommend Rich because I've grown to call him a friend since i met him, and I think he's someone everyone should make a concerted effort to meet and know. Professionally Rich is at the top of his game in his industry, so the networking is fantastic, but personally he's just someone who you feel honored to know. If you just want a place to stay, no worries, this place is fantastic, but if you want to be in a good place, with better company, i would book this house before someone else does.
