I live in Edina, Minnesota, US with my husband and three children. My oldest is in college and we have two Russian adoptees ages 13 and 14.
I am taking a break from the work world. I previously ran a nonprofit and a foundation in Minneapolis. Prior to that, I taught at a university, earned a Ph.D, worked in corporate America, etc. I enjoy reading, traveling, gardening, music, and ethnic foods. I have traveled extensively and have resided all over the US and abroad. Politically, I tend to be on the left of the spectrum but with carefully reasoned and relatively objective opinions(at least I try).
I tend to be gone as a guest exploring the city. I don't get up early or stay out late, however. Frankly, I have already done both of these in earlier years and don't feel the need now.
I have rented twice from Airbnb and have had an excellent experience both times!
