I'm originally from Chicago, but have lived in NYC, Atlanta, San Diego and the Washington D.C. area. I currently (2014) live in Antigua, Guatemala.
People tell me that I'm an easy-going guest. I am a quiet person who likes to read and write but I'm also always interested in good conversation.
English is my first language, and my Spanish is "so-so" (high basic/low intermediate).
I will respect your home as if it is my own. I love good food and wine and always like to hear about interesting local restaurants to try. I especially love to find places that are "off the beaten path" (not so touristy).
I enjoy travel - I've visited Asia, Europe, North America (US, Canada, Mexico), Central America (Guatemala and El Salvador), the Caribbean, and South America (Argentina, Chile and Ecuador).
I also like meeting new people and hearing their stories. My AirBnB experiences have been very positive. I first used AirBnb experience in Antigua, Guatemala. That couple who hosted me are now like my family.
