I am a 30 year old who loves running and climbing. I live with my lovely and charming girlfriend, Sara. We started hosting people when we lived in Cambridge and once we moved in together, we decided that we wanted to continue hosting because we always met such fun and interesting people through Airbnb. Sara and I both work in Cambridge, I am at MIT and she is part of an upstart biotech company.
Sara and I both climb and can almost always be convinced to head out to nice rock wall or even just get out to the nearest park. I also love to run, and both Somerville and Medford are fantastic places to get out and run as far as you want.
We have two cats who are always friendly and are Boston natives, unlike us. I am originally from Boulder and Sara is a New Englander through and through. We would be glad to host, as well as get to know you a bit. We also understand if you're here to get something done and will gladly give you the space you need.
We're both looking forward to meeting you!
