It's a bit tough to describe myself in a nutshell, but I'll give it a go. I work in the patent business, which occasionally makes me want to tear my hair out, but in general is intellectually interesting and challenging. I'm quite entrepreneurial. My background and interests are varied: I was a PhD candidate in Comparative Literature in a former life, and play classical piano. Generally I'm a fan of cultural experiences of all sorts - including great food/wine. As a guest, I'd like to think of my style as undemanding. Since I'm just starting out w/ this service, I'm more than happy to provide refs.
By the way, I don't know why the site cut off the top of my head in the photo, but I assure you in real life the top of my head is not cut off.
Also, I live in Brooklyn, NY, and while I don't have a room to rent, I'm happy to provide advice on places to stay and things to do here.
