I'm from the greater Boston area, currently taking a year off from working as a scientist for MIT to travel. My husband, Nathan, and I are thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail this spring, running 2,186 miles from Georgia to Maine, and are then hoping to travel around Europe and some of Asia in the winter. I am a laid back, fun-loving person who enjoys dancing, board games, hiking, and all things generally both adventurous and/or nerdy. I have ridden motorcycles, flown planes, and can spend hours solving math problems or talking about life and learning and philosophy. I love travelling with Airbnb because it offers interesting places to stay and gives me the opportunity to meet some fun people.
