My name is Rudi and I like to think of myself as a bit of a global puddle-jumper. I now live in Miami, Florida though I've lived in Pennsylvania, New York, Washington DC, Venezuela, France, Germany, and Colombia. I'm a social entrepreneur trying to build my place in today's busy world. I travel a lot for work but I also like to travel for pleasure :) Family is paramount for me, my parents, 2 brothers, nieces, and rest of my extended family. I have a soft spot for any where with a beach, a connection to the outdoors, and ironically a vibrant city. 5 things I can't do without? hmm, hummus, a good breakfast, my iphone, my running shoes, and a good book (and of course a good friend to share those things with!). I am new to Airbnb *but* I have lived the Airbnb experience for years staying with friends from Boston to Bogota and Doha to Munich. I like to live and experience things as a local and I am very respectful of people's space and right to peace-&-silence. I believe people have more in common than not even if they have different life experiences.
