Hey, I’m Shawn!

Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States · Member since September 2010

I'm an attorney living in Minneapolis, but often have to travel for work. When on business, I have to cover my own expenses as a consultant so I frequently turn to Airbnb to find clean, quiet and inexpensive accommodations during my stay. Ideally, I'm looking to find a "regular" place or two in each city where I do business (Richmond, VA; Washington DC; NYC; Boston; Chicago; Philadelphia; Miami) to which I can return during my business trips. It's a mutually beneficial relationship! ;)

Not at all averse to friendly chatter and even sharing a meal or drinks when I'm in town on business, but I usually keep quite busy and won't have much time to interface. :(

While on vacation with Airbnb, travel tips from you - the expert - are always appreciated, as well as the opportunity to practice your language, learn more about your culture and enjoy your household. This would be the reason I opt for Airbnb and not a hotel.

As for me, I have too many interests to really ennumerate fully here: running, hiking, camping, fishing, world travel, language, opera, live music, design, gardening, composting, cooking, photography....

I have been partnered to a wonderful man, Jered, for 10 years now and he may join me for some of these Airbnb experiences!
