I do research and curatorial work for a contemporary art museum in Minneapolis. I also have an extensive dance background, and have pretty much been moving all my life. Other things that are important to me: biking on a daily basis, hiking, camping and being outdoors, yoga, baking and trying out new recipes, photography, reading and writing, getting my passport stamped, the Himalayas, good hummus, reading too many celebrity gossip blogs, snow, my family and friends.
Aside from the United States, I have lived and worked in Australia as part of a Fulbright grant, and also in Ireland. Traveling is a priority, and most recently I trekked in the Khumbu (Everest) region of Nepal. If I had to do it all over again, I would've been a mountaineer and learned more languages.
Since I travel often for my research, I'm hoping that airbnb can provide that sense of home comfort that is impossible to achieve through hotel stays. I am a thoughtful, neat guest who appreciates a clean, quiet, non-smoking environment.
