About Me

Happy to host when I can! 😊 I helped a landlord manage their rentals in Indianapolis, then traveled to Central Asia for a year, and managed luxury apartments in Bloomington.

I'm currently studying computer programming and the Telugu language.

Хотя мой русский язык = чут чут слова... я знаю русский клавиатуру, не видя! 😂 Я люблю учиться!
