I am a freelance journalist specializing in science/environmental and travel writing. One wonderful aspect of my job is that it takes me to amazing places and allows me the privilege of meeting incredible people. I've been fortunate to visit Europe and South America multiple times, and I am looking to focus more on these regions in my writing.
A friend recently introduced me to Airbnb, and it appeals to me as a way to have more authentic experiences of a city and neighborhood than if I were to stay in a hotel. I am spending this year on a self-styled sabbatical, traveling to Spain and South America in order to write about these regions.
I am a quiet, neat and considerate guest/roommate, and would treat my host's home as I would want my own home to be treated. I am a non-smoker and prefer non-smoking accommodation. About my interests: I enjoy cooking and occasionally sharing meals with friends; going out for live music, dancing; and hiking. It's one of my goals to meet other people in my adopted cities who share enthusiasm for art, culture and nature. I speak Spanish conversationally and it is my goal to become fluent, so I prefer that my roommate be a native Spanish speaker. I look forward to meeting you!
