I was born and raised in Chicago, and I currently teach Social Science in Chicago. I enjoy traveling a lot, but don't always enjoy or want the hotel experience. I love feeling like I am LIVING in a spot, and not just passing through. I enjoy fun decor, but am very simple to please. I own my own home in Chicago and I definitely appreciate the work that goes into making a space a comfortable place to be.
I too enjoy hosting guests and I am usually referred a lot through friends and never tried a site like this.
When I am not working, I enjoy being with my family and friends. I like to explore new places to eat, but I love being a regular at my favorite spots. I enjoy the beach, and being outdoors and seeing/meeting people who share my interests.
