Chris and I were both born and raised in the MidWest. We both fell in love with Southern California before meeting each other. We love the vibe, the weather and the close setting to both nature and urban life that Los Angeles offers. After discussing our move to Cali for about a year we are ready to make it happen. We are looking for a temporary place to stay in Los Angeles while we adjust to California life, settle into jobs and find a more permanent living situation.
On AirBnb we are looking for a furnished studio or 1bd room with access to parking. We are selling most of our belongings and just bringing one car. We plan to start over with our new life in Los Angeles. We are ideally looking to live in the Silverlake, Echo Park, Los Feliz or Hollywood area so we would like our AirBnb host to live near so its closer for us to explore. We just can't live in a residence with a cat due to allergies but we love dogs!!
Brittany : 23, I was born and raised in a small farming community called Mahomet, Illinois (2.5 hours south of Chicago) where I lived on a farm thats been in my family for 150 years. While I appreciate that I was brought up in the heart of country living I always felt like more of a city girl. At the age of 19 I moved myself to downtown Chicago. While my parents are supportive of my life goals they did let me know that they weren't crazy about it. However I financed my living situation and my college education completely on my own so there was not much getting between me and where I wanted to go. In the end it all worked out very well.
I've always been a hard worker and have worked 2 or more jobs at a time since I was 16. I'm still living in Chicago and have since completed my degree in Hotel and Restaurant Management with a focus on Event Planning from Kendall College. During my time in Chicago I have worked for multiple properties of the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant groups, Trump International Hotel & Tower Chicago, The Pump Room at PUBLIC Chicago and Cork Catering & Events.
Before I officially moved to Chicago I made frequent trips to the city for auditions and castings. I have also spent the past 5 years pursuing acting and modeling in addition to school and other jobs. I have successfully worked many print jobs and commercial, TV & film acting gigs. I have done some traveling for work but only in the US (NYC, Miami and LA). Client highlights include: Lady Foot Locker, Target, Acuvue Brand Contacts, Modern Salon, The Knot, TMoblie Holiday Commercial, Slim Lizzy Cocktails Spokesperson and NBC's The Playboy Club (short lived series). My agents and west coast manager have been encouraging me to move to Los Angeles for the past several years. I'm finally ready to make it happen!
Chris : 26, I grew up in the Saint Charles suburb of Saint Louis, Missouri. I graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in History. My father worked as a hotel general manager and my mother worked for a restaurant group. I have spent a good portion of my life working in the hospitality industry in many different positions. I am passionate about cooking and have a wealth of knowledge about food, beverage and wine. I currently work as a server in Chicago at a place called Nightwood which is overseen by Chef Jason Vincent voted one of Food & Wines Best New Chefs.
I spent this past summer traveling all over Spain. It was my first trip out of the US and it was an eye opening and life changing experience. I want to continue my education after settling in California. I want to become fluent in Spanish and eventually teach Spanish speaking kids History. In my free time I enjoy running, working out, cooking, reading and going to concerts.
Chris & Brittany : We met working together at the PUMP Room and we've been pretty inseparable ever since.
