Greetings! Welcome to Knoxville - I will be the host of your stay at Williamswood Castle - I am a native Knoxvillian -- a lawyer, a beer-maker, and an air-cooled Volkswagen mechanic. I love meeting new people wherever I go, and have traveled all over the world in search of the most interesting people, the best adventures, and the tastiest food. Even though I have traveled and lived everywhere from Japan to South Africa, I still call Knoxville home, and want to show you the best time possible so that you see Knoxville as I do -- a quirky, fun, diverse, and sometimes ludicrously epic city.
