I am self employed running a small software development company in Portland, Oregon. Born and raised in Germany, I have spent 18+ years in the United States. My main destinations for business are New York City and the San Francisco Bay Area.
The 5 things that I can't live without are: My lovely daughter, my running shoes, my MacBook Pro (to make money), my iPhone (to make money and make life easier), coffee, nice people.
Some destinations that I totally dig are: New York, the Bay Area, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Paris, London, Vancouver B.C. I'd love to visit Tokyo one day.
When I'm traveling for work, I'm usually out and about except when I return to my home away from home to sleep. But it's nice to spend an off evening just relaxing or doing the inevitable laundry etc. I'm always social with hosts and love to spend some time to get to know you.
