Born in Marin County, California, I moved to Sweden 1991 and since then have been working as a freelance bassoonist, performing in most of the professional orchestras and ensembles such as the Swedish Radio Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic and Royal Opera. I have also recorded over 200 books for the Swedish Library of Talking Books. 2004 I completed a degree in media engineering at the Stockholm Institute of Technology.
I am married with two children, ages 16 and 18 My husband is a percussionist at the Stockholm Royal Opera. We have a dog and enjoy taking her for walks in the woods near our house in Vaxholm. Both I and my daughter are vegetarians. Although I don't watch much television and dislike violence I admit to enjoying the "Breaking Bad" series on NetFlix. I recently read "The Goldfinch" and highly recommend it.
I mostly listen to classical music but enjoy other music too - except for rap! Living in Sweden we like to travel to warmer climates or cities with lots of culture: museums and concerts. I am flexible and open-minded.
I am a responsible person and usually leave the places I stay at cleaner than before I arrived. My hosts are glad to have me visit because I am helpful and a good cook, with the talent of making do with ingredients on hand.
I am a big Airbnb fan. You can read more about me on my website. (email hidden)
