I have lived 40 years on and off in the Big Apple (from the French Alps and Paris). I love New York! I will help you love it too. I wear a smile and I have the New York energy and rhythm in me. I am blessed to live across from Central Park, where I start and finish the day, walking with my dog and see the seasons change, sometimes my guests join me on hidden path and great views.
I am forever curious. I love to see new places and traveled twice around the world.
I paint, do yoga, friends, jazz clubs and opera, I bicycle. I have a small cabin in the woods Upstate 2 hours North of NYC where I escape the roaring city sometimes and breath in the mountains.
Now I understand well your thirst for discovery. I enjoy receiving people, sharing stories, I communicate easily and keep a sense of humor.
See you soon.
