I am an academic librarian who teaches Italian & ESL classes to adult learners. I volunteer with the local Humane Society (there are 2 rescued cats often found lounging on my patio) & the USO. While working abroad for the United Nations, I traveled Europe extensively. My favorite cities are Rome, London, Copenhagen, Athens & San Francisco. I enjoy meeting travelers from other countries & am happy to refer my guests to local dining & recreation spots. My home is green and LGBT welcoming. I will consider cat-friendly canine guests on request.
Favorite cuisine: Italian, French, Japanese
