I'm a Los Angeles native who lived overseas - mostly in Europe - for many years. Family brought me back to the states (the house was my grandparents), and circumstances keep in once place most of the time. So I get my travel fill by meeting all the lovely guests that come through my home, which has been a real pleasure!
I do work full time, though a mostly flexible schedule, which helps with hosting. I'm a photographer and glass artist, in addition to speaking fluent French I speak "menu" in several other languages, and can say "I don't know" in Danish ;-)
