Hi! I'm Melissa, a 38 year old novelist/artist/editor living in Brooklyn, New York. I travel the world with my 12 year old kid. We've spent the last eight or nine years living with roommates from around the world, and love having house guests. I enjoy art openings, music, dinner parties, dancing, writing, book stores, muay thai and adventuring. I appreciate my time spent staying with people in their homes, and feel that I can get a sense of a place much better when I have personal connections. Life is about meeting people... Can't wait to meet you!
