I own one home and have two others as rental properties, so I understand the importance of taking good care of a home. I'm particular about the places I stay, and do quite a bit of research on neighborhood/location before choosing a place on Airbnb or a hotel reservation.
I'd much prefer to stay away from touristy locales and like staying in neighborhoods when visiting other cities. I sometimes travel with my dog (a 20lb, 11 year old Welsh Terrier - Pavel), but only when driving.
I enjoy walking and use public transportation where possible. I think walking and biking are the best ways to explore a new city. In addition to spending time outside, I enjoy eating and trying new restaurants, especially when travelling.
When I home I spend a lot of time on home improvements, and bike to my work when possible. I own a company that provides fundraising and marketing services to non-profit performing arts organizations.
