I'm an artist. My home's a giant gallery & summer camp for adults. There's tons of odd objects & art for you to peruse. There's also tons of work for me, to preserve & revive a 100+ year old, imperfect but beautiful "masterpiece" - so some projects are always at the half-way point. I spent 14 years as an interior designer and my home was always an experimental ground for my boldest ideas, colors, materials.

I have my own business & often work a LOT, mostly from home, sometimes in pajamas. I'm kind of a hippy, & definitely a humanist pinko leftycrat - but wait, there's more! - as founder of America's largest future institution, American Family Happily Institute, I can get you in the history books (if you want)! Like most artists, I don't mix well with social conservatives (my art satirizes 'family values' think tanks).

I try to have at least one conversation with most guests if they are amenable - it makes life richer. But in stressful periods/near deadlines/after recent huge projects, I might just not have energy to socialize, and guests shouldn't take it personally that i sometimes keep more to myself. I am introverted by nature too so it could just be that it's introvert wednesday!

Mostly I’m pretty quiet. The neighborhood itself is usually Extremely quiet. But there are times when I'm up late working, often with an assistant which involves talking. This house was built as a cabin and has some sound transmission - if you are Obsessed with quiet, it May not be a good fit.

I grew up in the 'heartland' but am now a long-time Bostonian & happy to share the low-down on cool stuff around here. We’re in a peaceful hidden spot surprisingly only 30-45 min. from most of greater Boston metro areas. There's plenty of restaurants & many 'things to do' within about 10-20 minutes' drive/bus too. In walking distance, there’s the beach, some woods, a CVS, hardware store, convenience store, post office, a couple basic restaurants, and a lot of peace…

Je parle un peu de francais. My partner, Jean-luc, who lives here with me, is a french pastry chef, peaceful guy, and fluent in French and German.
