We're a married couple from Nashville in our late 20's and we've just moved to NYC. We've been subleasing in the upper east side for 2 months, and need a place for at least the rest of January until we find our own apt.
Christian is employed as a Maitre d' at a French restaurant (although seeking entry-level opportunities in market research as well), and Amanda has just taken a job as manager of a cafe in Cobble Hill. She is a singer (pretty much everyone from Nashville is a singer), but isn't pursuing music professionally. Christian is also a photographer, but isn't pursuing that professionally either.
We love to travel and have most recently spent about 4 months backpacking around Central America. A couple years ago we traveled around China and Southeast Asia for 6 months. I guess you could say we're addicted to traveling. If you like, you can check out some videos and photography from our travels at (website hidden)
Also, if you need a reference other than reviews on AirBnB, we could provide the phone number of the person we're subleasing from now.
