Hey, I’m Shad!

Toronto, Canada · Member since July 2011

My wife and I first used AirBnb back in 2010 on a trip to Amsterdam for a family wedding. While most of the family stayed in hotels, we found this lovely, cozy apartment overlooking the canal, which we made our home for a week. That trip redefined how we now travel, where we decide to stay and what we choose to do. The personal touches, the thoughts, the tips, the company make all the difference when you're away from home. We've since enjoyed the comforts of numerous AirBnb homes from the cliffside farms of the Amalfi Coast in Italy to the bustling high-rises of Bangkok in Thailand.

We both enjoy spending our time relaxing, listening to a wide variety of music (from blues, jazz to unashamedly catchy pop tunes), strolling local streets, cooking meals, yapping and sleeping. I am a water resources engineer and enjoy geekily checking out drainage and stormwater systems, while my wife is a software engineer, who happens to love checking out the local swing/lindy hop dancing communities wherever she goes.

Our duo status has recently been increased to a trio with the arrival of our spiritedly curious baby daughter. She enjoys her time by occupying ours. For now.
