Both an AIrbnb host and traveler for years (and other organizations as well), I am a writer, business, coach, and workshop facilitator. I try to tread softly in recognition of our fragile humanity.
I appreciate quality, beauty, great design, kindness, accountability, decency, durability, optimism, good stories, sunshine, ease and flow, Serendipity.
My interests are ecclectic - architecture, philosophy, relationships, history, photography, sculpture, walking, bicycling, being on and near bodies of water, purposeful travel, cultivating friendships.
