In 1994 my family immigrated from former Soviet Union republic of Uzbekistan when I was 11 years old. In the last 20 years I have lived all over the Sacramento area: downtown/midtown, East Sac, West Sac, Old Sac, Fairs Oaks, Carmichael, Citrus Heights, Rancho Cordova, Roseville and even Lake Tahoe.
I have also traveled quite a bit over the years, both conventionally and via work-trade ("WWOOF'ing" / farm work, IT/web, etc) as well as Couch Surfin'.
One of my recent traveling jobs (2012) was managing an established 5-room Eco Bed & Breakfast business on the Big Island of Hawaii for about 6 months.
There, I dealt with all aspects of the hospitality industry: marketing, reservations, IT, accounting, paying bills, working in the garden, making breakfasts, hiring and managing housekeepers and even cleaning toilets when needed :)
After that I went to Alaska (2013) to help start a brand new luxury B&B, which included photography, website design, setting up online reservations and payment, preparing the house, polishing floors, etc.
I fell in love with the B&B business and have been looking to start my own operation of some kind.
My dream is coming true this year!
I've been fortunate to secure a really nice little studio in the heart of urban Sacramento in a very unique historic building. The location is as good as it gets and this studio is perfectly setup for your private stay in the Capital City.
Besides the extensive knowledge of the local area, I'm also a private driver / chauffeur via Uber. So I am available to not only pick you up from the airport (at a discount) but also drive you around and be your personal tour guide!
With my passion for great service, hospitality and entrepreneurship, I strive to offer you the best possible travel experience!
Thanks to AirBnB for creating such a great platform to facilitate this.
Besides hosting and driving, I do some web design and am slowly-but-surely getting back into real estate investing after losing 5 houses to foreclosure in the crash of 2006/07 (ouch!) Just recently I passed the California real estate license exam, so I could represent others while repairing my credit and building capital to buy/flip again.
Enough about me...
I am here to serve YOU and be a part of the journey.
See you soon!
