Hi there! I'm excited to join the air bnb community. I'm an avid user and advocate of Open Source and P2P technologies /networking in my life both on and offline to promote a better world -- that said I'm not a "techie" -- just a tech savvy artist, writer, community organizer and educator who believes in collaboration and strength in numbers:)
I run the creative community/magazine Exit Strata
selfpublish/blog at The Trouble With Bartleby,
am in the process of founding a independent publishing cooperative, Heroes and Hobos
teach english at city college
am mama to a 3.5 year old little lady with two gay dads (she lives with them)
So I'm very busy! and I often write at home -- a space others breathe and relax into, walk into and say, "ah! I'm home!"
My home is a sanctuary and a space of creative foment -- a place where composting, magazine editing, potlatches, and blogging meet... where people gather to make things and share food and words and thoughts.
I am lucky to live in this wonderful city in a neighborhood full of creative people, in a converted industrial live/work district where many are making art, music, dance, and other beauty on a daily basis.
I am grateful to be a global citizen and excited to meet others travelling and visiting this way -- I'm open to longer term sublets as well!
As a New York Native and cultural curator (and avid foodie) expect me to be bubbling over with REAL "not for tourists" suggestions of things to see, do, experience, and EAT in your time here! I'm proud to say this is a very queer friendly neighborhood and environment as well.
I'm of course always interested in meeting other creative people from all over the world. Poets, artists, musicians, writers, dancers, come through! I am happy to connect you with my community here, and maybe highlight your work in the magazine! :)
