I live with my husband Greg and our two dogs Winter and Smudge in the far edge of Goleta, CA. Greg works as a theatre designer and a professor at UCSB and I work for a non-profit homecare and hospice organization. We both love skiing (backcountry and downhill), hiking, camping, gardening, running, bike-riding, and pretty much anything that lets us play outdoors. We are also avid cooks who enjoy experimenting with new recipes (Greg is a vegetarian and I'm a carnivore).
Greg and I are also passionate about travel. Our latest adventures have included skiing the French Alps, scuba diving in Hawaii, soaking in hot springs around Iceland, backpacking in the Sierras, and island hopping across Greece.
We previously hosted many people in our wonderhouse in Walla Walla, WA, where we tried to make our home affordable and comfortable for fellow travelers who wanted a personal, welcoming, and local experience. We recently moved to Santa Barbara and are not able to host here due to our rental restrictions, but we hope to host again after we buy a house next year!
