THE WALK Central Park, once a swampy wilderness far from downtown, hides a history starring the original Edison lights and the biggest fair nobody's ever heard of. The surrounding neighborhood is lined with some of Louisville's grandest mansions and hidden, gas-lit walking courts inspired by Victorian-era London. While tourists are hitting the same, well-known spots in trendy neighborhoods, you'll be in a very small group with a local writer and the big, exuberantly loving dog Cassius Thunderpaws in the most sumptuous corner of this historic preservation district, capping off with a scratch-made donut from a cult-favorite shop. THE PUP Cash is a goofy, sweet Great Pyrenees/German Shepherd who's been making Airbnb friends since he was tiny. He's trained as a therapy dog, though nobody had to teach him how to love people! In fact, he loves you already. To bring your dog, please book a Private Tour. THE LOCAL Consider this an ask-me-anything where you can get answers to burning questions about what it's like living in a sprawling home in a preservation district, the country's largest concentration of Victorian homes – but also an an evolving urban neighborhood with challenges. THE FINALE Over life-changing donuts at North Lime, a neighborhood favorite housed in a former industrial building, I'll share my top Louisville picks for the rest of your stay.
As a freelance writer I cover the food & bourbon scene locally, and write for national outlets about travel, food & drink, dogs, home & design, and other cool things. You may have seen my byline in outlets like Conde Nast Traveler, Esquire, Martha Stewart, Delta Sky and Food Network magazines, Architectural Digest, Salon, Apartment Therapy, and lots more. I'm also one of Airbnb's longest-tenured superhosts, with two Airbnbs at our 1887 Victorian home. I love being an ambassador for our neighborhood and am also a vocal critic where change is needed, and can share my insider knowledge of, and passion for, our historic and often overlooked neighborhood. My co-host/BFF Cassius "Cash" Thunderpaws is AKC Canine Good Citizen certified, and passed a therapy dog test. He's a love sponge with boundless enthusiasm for new friends.

This historic urban neighborhood is my home! Cash & I stroll the park, the mansion-lined streets, and the hidden courtyards of Old Louisville daily and love to share its secrets with visitors. You might never notice Floral Terrace or the Witch's Tree if you drove past, let alone stumble upon off-the-beaten track North Lime Doughnuts. I'll share insights as a local resident and writer about our neighborhood's history, challenges, and potential.
