My work is helping non-profits and NGO's better utilize digital tools and the internet to meet their organizational missions. My focus is NGO's working for social and economic justice.
I'm married and my wife is a graduate student in Classics at the University of Southern California (USC) in Los Angeles, where we both live. We are new to AirBnB, but we have friends in DC who have been AirBnB hosts for years now and I love being at their house when they have visitors.
We both love to travel and have been across the United States and have recently visited Turkey. We love all kinds of foods - living in Los Angeles you have your pick from Mexican to Central American to Korean/Chinese/Japanese/Thai to Armenian to Turkish to Mediterranean and everything in between.
We try to be as non-invasive as we can as guests and tend to spend most of the days out exploring where we are and then coming home to cook and relax in the evenings. We also try to travel as lightly as possible while also being as prepared as possible. Mostly a big backpack each and one additional bag covers it.
Our best experiences come when we get to meet and interact with the people living in the places where we visit. That's why we like AirBnB's approach of allowing people to rent out space in their homes to travelers from all over. This way you really get the feel for the place you are visiting.
