I'm a social and hospitable host who loves to share his home with others. I was born and raised in Boston, went to university literally down the road at Northeastern and so with plenty of knowledge I would be more than happy to help. I work from home and so usually around if you ever needed anything. My mother lives in a separate apartment (so please feel free to say hi if you cross paths with her outside) and I stay at my girlfriend's across the street. So I'm always close by and available, but you can have your space as well.

The studio is adjacent to an separate apartment next door, so please simply be considerate. The studio is located on the ground level of the building, up 4 steps off of the sidewalk, and though its a residential neighborhood, its still the city so there will be general background city noise.
Our area is considered safe and quiet for Boston, but this is the city, and anything can happen anywhere at any time so I always like to tell people to have common sense in travels in the whole city. We are walking distance to many good cafes, bars, restaurants down Tremont St past the T (metro station) and a ~$8 Uber ride to the day/nightlife of the Back Bay.
Please be quiet and consider for the adjoining apartment next door

Born and raised in Boston, to parents from former Portuguese islands in the Atlantic ocean. I'm an international, global citizen who loves travel, food, cultures, languages, history, current events and much more. I'm a former biomedical engineer (cardiovascular, sports medicine) now working in residential real estate (investments, design & development, management) & loving it! I also spend time on issues I'm passionate on, one of which is education where I sit on the board of a school.
I love hosting guests in my home and getting to meet different people from all over the world and give them the best experience in my home that I look for when I travel all over on Airbnb. The engineer in me loves feedback, and to make improvements so please feel free to share your thoughts so in turn other guests will have an even better experience.
Fun fact: I studied Mandarin for 6 years and sadly forgot most of it, so I'd love to practice it with you if you speak it :)
