I'm from the United States, southern Indiana, near Louisville Kentucky.
I am a professor at Indiana University Southeast. I've been there since 1992, and teach computer science.
My wife is a high school math teacher.
We both like to travel, but most of our travels have been in the U.S.
I have visited Spain three times. Once with my entire family. A second time to visit my daughter while she studied in Sevilla, and a third time to visit my son when he studied in Madrid. This third time we used AirBnB to rent an apartment.
I also have visited Paris twice with my wife and both times we used AirBnB to rent an apartment.
From August 2012 to December 2012 I lived in Quito Ecuador. I was traveling as a United States Fulbright Scholar and taught at the University of San Francisco de Quito. While there I lived with a host family for four months. While in Ecuador I kept a blog, search Joe's Excellent Adventure Ecuador. You should be able to find it.
