I am a university history professor who travels quite a bit to conduct archival research and hope airbnb will be a good way to find convenient and comfortable lodging and cool people away from home. I have a dog, two kids, and a partner of almost twenty years, and enjoy travelling except when it takes me away from them. I enjoy reading newspapers, magazines, and books on 20th-century US history, which is what I write and teach. I love 1970s cinema and independent films, I'm a chronically disappointed Chicago Bears fan, and I'm told I mix a mean cocktail. My favorite way to spend a day is at the beach with my kids, either oceanside or on the shores of Lake Michigan.

I am a quiet, cordial, tidy, and self-sufficient house guest. Having lived in rural, urban, and suburban places in various parts of the US, I'm comfortable in most settings and around many different kinds of people, though I prefer thoughtful, tolerant folks the best.
