I live in Berkeley and work in San Francisco at a nonprofit media organization that produces documentary films. I travel a lot, but always prefer staying in houses to hotels, which feel very generic to me. I'm more interested in discovering the special character of a place than I am in being pampered.
I very much enjoy getting to know my hosts if they're interested in chatting but am also perfectly happy being independent.
My phone number is (phone number hidden) if you have any questions for me. Thanks!
