About me:

I’m 34 years old from California and have been living in Chicago for the last 7 years completing a doctorate. I will be taking an academic position starting in September and hope to make a smooth transition a month before in August. I would ideally like to sign on for a year long lease, or atleast stay through the school year.

I understand what it is like to live in a city with different types of people (from friends to strangers) with different schedules and can contribute to a clean and respectful common living space. It is important for me to have open communication and to create a calm and safe environment, devoid of passive aggressive behavior and negative energy, where one can retreat from the excitement of the city.

I do have two wonderful and friendly (short haired) cats. I would really be like to bring them with me and not have to give them away when I move here. I realize I may just have to give them up in order to move here. I am mindful and responsible about sweeping/cleaning after the cats and myself. They mainly enjoy laying around the house and cuddling a bunch, and do not damage furniture or create too much chaos. I enjoy hanging/working at coffee shops, riding my bike around the city, chess, crosswords, reading, writing and going for some beers/music or porch/stoop hangs.

I am in town for this weekend and through most of the week, and will be free to see if I will be a good fit. Let me know what you think.
