About Me

Settled down in Chicago and bought my own apartment so I am open to hosting travelers visiting the Windy City.

I have a sleeper couch for you and a foldable mattress so I can host two guys maximum currently. If you have a sleeper bag then I can host more. I got extra flat sheets and comforter for you to keep yourself clean and warm.

I am in LGBT community - just in spirits of full disclosure. I work 9 to 5 on weekdays. So from Monday to Friday, you need to arrive no earlier than 5:40 pm.

My location is around Illinois Institute of Technology and you can take No. 4 CTA bus or green line (15 min walk) to downtown Chicago.

I used to backpack a lot having quite a lot of couch surfing experience so I do have a good grasp on host-surfer dynamic :) It is not mandatory to bring me gifts, but if you really wanna show appreciation, fridge magnets or key chains from your hometown or residence will be appreciated. They are tiny and easy to carry around in your luggage or backpack. I used to bring them to my hosts.

Happy travels!
