I am originally from the Chicago area, have lived in a few other cities in the US, but prefer to call Chicago home. I am gainfully employed, but lucky enough to have a flexible schedule that allows for some traveling. I enjoy international as well as domestic travel, and have been a guest at other AirBNB sites before, and I think it is a great service. I look forward to using it more, and am glad to host others in my space so that they may enjoy all that Chicago, and my neighborhood, have to offer. More about me? I'm a rather relaxed traveler, I prefer wandering and discovering as I go rather than having a fully stocked touristy schedule each day, I enjoy eating different kinds of food and trying the local culture and cuisine on for size. Finding things that are not mainstream can be the most fun.
