Native of NYC! I'm a young professional who loves to visit and explore American cities. I studied American Studies in college and am fascinated by the United States urban experience. I survive off of public transportation (but really... I don't drive)! I'm also involved with a few national organizations, so traveling for conferences, research and networking is something I have enjoyed doing since I was in school.
I have lived in New York, western Massachusetts, Washington DC, and Seattle. I long to return to Seattle. I adore cities with water. If I could, I'd travel only based on food recommendations -- I eat everything. My next spots to visit are: Chicago, SF/Bay Area, Atlanta, Twin Cities.
I'm friendly and a people person. I welcome all "locals-only" city tips and generally veer away from commercialized touristy things. I'm also generally fearless and not hesitant to explore neighborhoods off the beaten path.
