Architect and teacher (IIT in Chicago) who loves to travel with family (two teenagers and husband) and without. Friendly, independent, and easy guest who likes big adventures with small footprints. Favorite Travel destination is Rome...anything in Italy actually. Grew up in suburban Ohio, so cities, oceans, and mountains are always a thrill! Can't live without some kind of creative endeavor and like the idea that what I make might make people happy.
