I am originally from Rochester, Michigan, and moved to DC in 1997 for a promotion with my employer at the time, Ernst & Young. Moving from Michigan to DC was a cultural shock; however, it was the best move I made in my life. Although DC is considered a major Metropolitan area, it is really a town comprised of neighborhoods so it really has a small town feel. I am the CEO of Stages Premier, Realtors, of which I started in April 2011. This alone keeps me very busy; therefore, my reason to rent one of my rooms here on AirBnB.
