I'm an entrepreneur, running a holistic and mindful education company out of my home, empowering students to manifest top scores on high stakes tests like the SAT, GMAT, USMLE, and more. From the metro NY area, I'm a bay area transplant with a dream home.
When workaways have stayed with me they typically reap the benefit of my place sometimes being a social hub for parties and hangouts, so folks get a full taste of the culture, that you don't typically get as a tourist or traveller. I am also tapped into a lot of Bay Area culture so can point to off the beaten path places to go and various experience, not typically found in a travel book or on a web site.
My last few workaways have been ideal. They all helped around the house with cleaning, organization and upkeep, some handyman work, and helping with things I just don't get to like spray painting some metal chairs to changing fuses in my car, to helping defrost my freezer. Others helped with their own skill sets, like revamping my website, marketing and video work or helping me get the house together for an event. Meanwhile, due to the close proximity to San Francisco, Napa, Sonoma, Oakland and Berkeley, all were able to soak in the Bay Area - at their leisure, discovering the area and all the beauty it beholds.

I'm an outgoing person and my home tends to be somewhat of a social hub. Socially in tune with the pulse of the Bay Area, while living in a home that is off the beaten path, peaceful with majestic views, and the ease to get into Oakland and San Francisco makes this an ideal destination for landing in the bay area.
In the past few months, I've hosted a comedy show, dance party, art show, food tasting, and have other upcoming projects and events in the works.
This host offers accommodation and payment.
There ae lots of opportunities to help out at my space.

Let me know about your experience with related skills and how long you'd like to stay.
I am an entrepreneur from the East Coast transplanted to the west coast. I enjoy connecting with people, traveling, nature, dance, music, healthy food...
In one of the East Bay quiet residential neighborhoods next to one of the largest parks in the region (tons of hiking) and with sweeping views of the bay area. Slightly rural with the city 25 minutes away (and in sight!), plus super close to the rest of the East Bay, Napa, Sonoma and North Bay - easily and quickly. It’s more like a spa getaway than urban or suburban living. Easy transit to downtown, San Francisco, Berkeley and more.
ALL APPLICANTS MUST BE INTERVIEWED BY SKYPE, GOOGLE CHATS or FACETIME.
English, SOME spanish and hebrew.
One furnished bedroom with a full bathroom with a shower and tub. Another free-standing structure with wood burning stove, electricity with plumbing in the main house. Fruits and veggies are all included, as is breakfast meals. The rest we'd decide depending on needs and skills, time, and cooking schedule.
My home is in the east bay close to the largest regional park with miles of trails in nature. I'm also an easy trek to San Francisco, Napa/Sonoma, and other areas in the East Bay. The BART would be a $5- $8 uber/lyft ride away, unless you have your own car and ease to get places.
