I am a stay-at-home dad with my darling baby girl, Basma. Her name means "Smile" and she lives up to the name. I am an immigrant from Morocco, and I speak Arabic, Moroccan (Darija), French and English fluently. I speak/understand a little Spanish and Italian. I've lived in Philadelphia for 13 years and can advise you on area attractions and restaurants (including vegan options). I enjoy soccer, and have coached on the local youth soccer league. My wife, Melanie, is an activist and is connected to the local social justice community. She worked at a local homelessness non-profit before she started at her current position at the Philadelphia School District.
We plan to use the Airbnb funds we raise to buy my mom a plane ticket from Morocco to Philly so she can hang out with her grandchild! It's a worthy cause! :)
