I'm a professional writer and journalist covering global human rights abuses. i travel a lot for my work--so i try to rent out my space when i'm not using it. there are a lot of interesting books here and objects from around the world. i am a friendly person with eclectic yet stylish tastes. the apt reflects that i think. i prefer people who want to be in the east village and make use of the wonderful neighborhood--and then retreat to the apt when they want some peace. this is not a place suitable for parties or gatherings. it is for one individual, a couple or two good friends. it is my primary residence and i hope that people will respect that. it's a lovely spot in a lively neighborhood. enjoy!
