Howdy fellow AirBNB'r!
My name is Russell and I'm a designer living in San Francisco, California USA. I work in animation and am passionate about the arts, education, and good food. I'm also a bicycle nut and pretty decent at billiards. You can see my work here: (website hidden))(website hidden)
So I was raised to be a gracious guest: make my bed every morning, contribute to the well-being of the household, and provide a warm community for any other guests I may encounter. If you cook, I'll clean. I'm fairly organized, keep up regular hygiene, and enjoy making a space better than it was when I got there... which usually means donating some custom art to the host :) I can keep to myself if necessary, but I definitely enjoy getting to know my hosts and getting a sense of the local culture.
Hopefully we'll meet down the road!

FAVORITE TRAVEL DESTINATIONS:
Having never traveled abroad, I have traveled quite a bit in the United States. I come from a state called Montana, deep in the Rocky Mountains where 3 feet of snow was a common occurrence. I grew up fishing, hunting, and living in nature.
I now live in San Francisco, California and enjoy the duality of city life and nature that the bay area provides. I love the arts and music culture here. And the pizza. My god... the pizza.

Hitchhikers Guide, Comfort Me With Apples, Existentialism and Human Emotion, Calvin and Hobbes.

Musically, I'm a hot mess. I dig bluegrass, underground hip hop, dubstep, oldschool country, pretty much anything I can shake it to. I've been on a Cannibal Ox and Mumford & Sons kick the past few weeks.
