I was born and raised near Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I've always had the itch to travel. I lived in Germany as a foreign exchange student and Thailand as a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer. I've traveled throughout the United States, Europe, and Southeast Asia (I love to give travel advice on these areas). For the past four years, I've been working with refugee families in the Pittsburgh region. You'd be surprised at the diversity Pittsburgh has to offer!
In my free time, I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh. I also enjoy reading, cycling, running, swimming, tennis, karaoke, relaxing on my porch swing, visiting friends, and much more. My favorite movies are Zoolander and The Sandlot (both available at my apartment) and my choice of music completely depends on my mood. I love eating all types of foods and trying new things.
My apartment has one big bedroom and a small living room and kitchen. A lot of light pours in the big windows. The bathroom has a tub shower. I'm sorry, but the apartment is upstairs and not handicap-accessible and I haven't paid the pet fee, so please no pets. I don't allow smoking. I do offer free parking, clean bedding and towels and light breakfast foods. I don't have cable tv, but I do have a BlueRay and Wii. I live within 2 blocks of a grocery store, coffee shop, RedBox, and pharmacy. Also, busses directed all around the city are right outside. My apartment is stocked for living. While I would find it weird if someone wore my clothes, guests should feel free to cook food, read a book, watch a movie, play Wii, etc. If you have special requests for the apartment, please let me know and I will do my best to accomodate.
I am joining Airbnb for a very specific reason. It turns out that I'm such a big advocate for Peace Corps that I've convinced three of my closest friends to join. But, now I miss them and am hoping to save enough money to go visit them all in Africa next year. So, if you choose to stay in my apartment, this is what you'll be supporting! And, thank you!
Please let me know if you have any questions!
