I am a degreed professional (mechanical engineering as well as nutrition science) with a variety of passions and interests. In addition to a 'corporate' engineering career, I have worked in the natural foods industry (various roles over several years (email hidden)-op), nutritional counseling, and residential construction and interior design. For the past few years, I have been dedicated to the design/build of Green Gate Guest House- one of two unique lodging properties on my 13 acre homestead.
I have a passion for all areas of construction, design, technology, sustainable living, renewable energy, etc., and enjoy putting ideas into action through the myriad of projects I always have going!
I enjoy nature, outdoors, exercise (running, hiking, cycling, skiing, etc), as well as the culture and arts of the city. I've traveled domestically and internationally, and enjoy a mix of both 'roughing it' and 'pampering'- great experiences often include a bit of both! My travel adventures have been minimal for the past few years due to work commitments, but I look forward to more travel ahead (Nepal may be next!).
Having operated my vacation rental properties for almost two years now, I have been fortunate to host such a variety of wonderful guests. Everyone that has stayed here has been a pleasure to get to know, and I look forward to all our future guests.
