Hey there! Here's some info about us!
Katie: Female - 29 - She is a birth & postpartum doula and placenta crafter (placenta prints, capsules, tinctures, etc.), though she is well outside of the hairy grandmother midwife image that may spring to mind. She likes to create in the kitchen, clean (yes, really), take pictures and travel.
Kris: Male - 38 - He is a former business owner (IT Consulting)/Mortgage Holder/Slave to Society, but has abandoned that load of crap in favor of rediscovering himself and finding something to do everyday that he is passionate about. He likes regrowing his foreskin, playing guitar, throwing a frisbee, traveling, making Kombucha and reading biographies of heroin addicted 80s rockers.
We LOVE to travel and our latest venture is creating passive streams of income so that we can travel more often! We are writing e-books: Katie has 3 on DIY Placenta Crafting + a few books of naughty stories, and one about a solo summer traveling Europe. Kris has written "The Quick & Dirty Guide to Proper Anal Sex" (it's an easy, 5-step guide) and is working on one about traveling simple and cheap.
We're super outdoorsy, love yoga & meditation, talking about polyamory and foreskin restoration, listening to live music, and are into the urban farm scene and green living in general. As a couple, we are very well connected, communicate smoothly and are very respectful and low drama. We have been friends for 15+ years and have been "together" for three and a half years.
Composting, recycling, reducing and reusing are important to us. We like to know where our food comes from and support the farmers market versus a commercial grocery store as much as we can. We generally try to steer clear of single-use made-to-be-disposable items (coffee cups, to go boxes, plastic silverware, individually packaged snacks, etc.) We do not use chemicals at all - we make our own toothpaste, laundry soap, etc., use natural bars of soap, clean with baking soda and vinegar, etc.
We are passionate about all things birth related. We can teach you how to encapsulate a placenta. We can educate you about the myths of circumcision and about restoring your foreskin. We can enlighten you on anal sex. We love the work of David Deida & Mark Manson and enjoy applying their principles to all of the relationships in our lives.
Being active Airbnb hosts ourselves gives us a unique perspective and, we think, makes us better guests because we know what it's like to open your home to travelers. We have been hosting people for 2+ years and have met some of the most amazing people, many of them have become lifelong friends.
