I am a California native living in San Francisco since 2005, and I love my city!
I work for the hottest domestic airline there ever was ever, and I enjoy getting to meet new people while traveling on a daily basis.
The best thing about traveling is going to new cities and trying the local grub :) I much prefer experiencing new places according to the local flavor. Staying in a trendy community, instead of at a tourist flooded resort. Taking public transportation, as opposed to hailing a cab or renting a car. When in Rome, right? (Never been there, but it's on my long list of places to visit...)
I'm pretty type A... courteous, respectful, and very organized. Yet still personable and friendly. Pretty much the most ideal guest you could ever find. After working in the service industry, I understand the value of respect. Respect of people's time, space, and energy. I'm not a big fan of drama.
I look forward to hearing from all you potential hosts out there!
