I am a Seattle product developer for Greenfire Products, a company I founded that focuses primarily on developing and manufacturing eco-friendly multi-purpose products. I am currently in the process of opening up a small experimental retail store 10 blocks up Pike Street from Seattle's Pike Place Market.
I have worked in the property management industry on the side for 15+ years. I discovered that Airbnb can be a wonderful way to meet new and interesting people, not only through hosting, but being the guest too. All of my trips around the world now have AirBnb incorporated into them to get a more enriching experience of both culture and people. I find that many hotels these days lack the genuine down-to-earth conversation, culture, and hospitality.
