Hello, I'm a 50-something marketing exec for a global software company based in San Francisco. I travel fairly frequently for business and pleasure (preferably both), but I'm a newbie to airbnb, despite the fact that their offices are just a few blocks from mine. For a long time I thought airbnb was like sofa-surfing, but then my friends started telling me about their great experiences using it, so here I am. I've used short-term apartment stays before in Paris, Madrid, New York, but not via airbnb. Outside of work (which occupies far too much of my time) I enjoy art, music, movies, culture of all kinds. I'm not particularly picky about accommodations but I enjoy the convenience of having some personal space and a kitchen, and I just feel more grounded staying in a studio or flat. I don't smoke and I'm not a party monster; you'll find your place as clean when I leave as when I arrived. I sometimes travel with a friend but I'm frequently solo. Trivia fact: I lived and worked in Spain for five years and speak fluent Spanish. You can find me on (website hidden) too. Anything else, just ask!
