I've lived in San Diego, CA, USA for 28 years, raised 2 kids mostly on my own and have been a professional craftsman and home builder for most of my adult life.
I'm a semi-professional musician, recording artist and full time instrument maker. I build a very unique and beautiful musical instrument called the Array Mbira which has a very strong internet presence and is used by professional musicians and film makers all over the world. I usually travel with one of my instruments and am always happy to play.
I love to travel and have spent quite a bit of time in Japan and Indonesia as well as extensive travel in the western US. I enjoy many outdoor activities like hiking, biking, kayaking, snow boarding etc. as well as good food and especially good wine. I love exploring the many wine regions up and down the west coast.
I've been involved with airbnb since January of 2012 when my partner began renting a room in her historic craftsman home in the Kennsington district of San Diego. We've had a very positive experience hosting travelers from all over the world.
