I have a degree in graphic design and try and do cause based freelance design when I'm not working my wonderful job with Airbnb - which has expanded my world of travel more than I thought possible! I've gone to Austin, New York, Nashville, New Orleans, and moved to Portland!
I have a dog name Freddie (after Freddie Mercury) who is my best friend and sometimes travel companion, do freelance graphic design, and was born and raised right in Los Angeles listening to classic rock, like Queen, who is my all time favorite band. My favorite book series definitely has to be Harry Potter, I've probably read all of them 10 times each easily. Food wise, as long as it's delicious I'm happy but I am pretty sure I could live on sushi and tapas.. and Chipotle.
As far as when I travel, I treat everyone's belongings with respect- both friends and strangers. I will always clean up after myself and never disrespect the space that I am in. I rarely spend time inside my accommodations when I travel anyway, with the exception of the occasional quiet evening in, because I am out embracing and immersing myself in the local culture.
You only live once, so go big!
