Though I graciously offer my home and hospitality to travelers and guests of all walks, I seek guests who intend to treat my Airbnb as a place to stay and not a place to be. In other words, I prefer to host guest who intend to stay-in for most of their time here as though we are roommates.
Interaction with guests
I always do my best to help guests in any way I can throughout their stay, whether it’s related to the accommodations or tips about the city. I do work a lot, and can keep strange hours, but I also do most of my work from home and/or my workspace around the corner. To some guests it appears I never leave the house, while to others it appears I'm never home. Regardless, if you need me, I am easy to reach via phone, text, or email, and am usually nearby and I will promptly respond to any needs.
Other things to note
I do have a large dog that lives here with me. He’s calm and well-behaved, super sweet (loves all people and animals), and he’s quiet (very rarely barks). If you meet him, you’ll love him. He gets bathed regularly and I keep the house clean by dusting and vacuuming daily, so pet hair isn’t an issue. He is not allowed in the guest room.
Guests are permitted to smoke on my porch or anywhere else outside they like. Smoking indoors is prohibited. For non-smokers concerned about dust/smell – I promise you will not have any issues here; guest reviews put my cleanliness rating at 97%.
I have a bulleted list of instructions that I send to guests a day or two prior to arrival. It include specifics about such things as venting the bathroom when showering to using the dishwasher. The list is also posted in the guest room. If you would like to me to send you the house instructions before you commit to booking, feel free to message me.
Other than that, I only ask that you treat my home like it was the home of a good friend: you can feel comfortable to do your own thing, but be respectful to me and my property. As long as you're not unreasonably noisy, messy, or cause any damage, there should be no problems.
No visitors or additional guests. I do not mind if you meet with others here briefly before going out together.
I prefer guests refrain from cooking in my home that is beyond simple food prep, such as microwavable food, cereal, etc. Normal office rules apply - no popcorn or fish.

I'm music professional (producer/A&R/artist development) and college professor (music production and music business lecturer). A Boston native, I've been living in Los Angeles for ten years, while splitting my time between LA and New York.

I love to meet people from different backgrounds and learn about them and their culture. If you have any questions, special considerations, or requests, don’t hesitate to ask.
