I love bringing change - it's my life's mission! I work as a consultant helping companies change to be more efficient. I'm a real estate broker and renovate property as well. I get my biggest kick out of turning an old rundown house into something beautiful!
I fell in love with St Petersburg when I moved here. I never expected to stay more than two or three years and that was at least 15 years ago! I've renovated several properties here; all built in 1925 or 1926. I'm really happy to be able to share some of those through AirBnB. I try to think of everything I would want when I travel and make it available. I think it's important for a place to have its own personality and be comfortable.
I try to follow my guests lead when I host. I'm available and try my best to respond quickly. Our community is open and friendly but not intrusive and that's my hosting style as well. I want people to feel at home and comfortable to do as they wish while visiting our city.
