Five years ago I moved from Carroll Gardens in Brooklyn to Venice Beach in California. I like to say that the vibe in Venice Beach is like Brooklyn with palm trees. I am a born and bred New Yorker but spent my teenage and college years living in England. I love to travel and have been all over the world. I have a 11 year old boy. Renting out my place through Airbnb has been a lot of fun and at times felt like armchair travel.
