I'm a biologist in acedemic research by day and occasionally involved in the music biz by night.
I also volunteer at the Zoo doing behavioral research on the Giant Pandas.
Somehow i manage to find time to play soccer with a work league and enjoy outdoor activities like kayaking and snorkeling or hiking the nearby mountains.
I enjoy taking advantage of San Diego's numerous breweries and vineyards and farmer's markets and enjoy the local businesses of my neighbors.
I've really enjoyed having travelers stay at my house (hosting since July 2011). Thanks to Airbnb, I've met a lot of wonderful people and made some great friends, whom I keep in touch with and visit.
I began using this site as a way to give back, by offering a low cost, safe and friendly travel option.
It reminded me of how my ancestors would open their doors to family and friends during their travels. That is my goal for your visit: to feel welcomed as a long-lost friend or distant family member, rather than a random stranger passing through (as you get in hotels). I'm not really a host. I want you to feel like this is your home too.
As the old saying goes... "I'm not only a member, but also a client"
I do the majority of my travel, staying at airbnb locations.
Hope to see you soon.
