I grew up in San Rafael, California and I moved to Eugene in 2006. Now, I'm a Project Manager at software firm that specializes in design, engineering and delivery. In all aspects of my life I strive for minimalism – you'll notice this when you stay in my cottage. With less clutter there is more room for thought, peace and contentment.
Because I'm a minimalist, I travel light and only with the essentials. I also live light and only with the essentials. I value quality, and I'm willing to pay for it – when one has less, one can invest more. Additionally, I value experiential wealth rather than material wealth. I put a high value on time spent with friends around the table enjoying the fruits of our world.
I love to cook (and eat!). I also love wine, beer and liquor – to explore the nuance beverage is an unending adventure and one I thoroughly enjoy. And, of course, libation brings great revelry to each occasion.
Airbnb in wonderful because I have the chance to meet interesting people when I host them in my home. I'm a generous person, and Airbnb gives me a chance to share with others. You may notice small treats when you first arrive at my house.
