I'm from Denver, have lived here for 31 years now - 21 years in the same old house. I love my family - husband, 2 kids (son and daughter) in college at Vassar and my dog Matilda. My favorite trip this year was a 9 day float on the San Juan River in Utah with our best friends - my idea of heaven on earth. I have been an employed environmentalist in various sectors throughout my career. I helped to start and for five years ran the non profit that owns and operates Denver's bike sharing system. Now I consult with other cities who are interested in bike sharing. I think sharing is important to our collective future. There's more than enough to go around. That's why airbnb appeals to me.
