I work at a startup in San Fran ((website hidden)) and previously was a White House staffer.
Before living in DC, I went to Yale for college and I grew up in the Midwest (Oklahoma, Iowa, Minnesota).
When I'm not working I'm usually biking, running, reading, talking startups, or exploring somewhere outside the city.
I work long hours (8am - 10pm) so if you rent a room you'll have the place to yourself almost all the time.
If you're new to the city I'm happy to tell you about the best restaurants, bars, parks, etc.
Our apartment is amazing and the neighborhood is close to everything. :)
