I love having guests and I'll do everything I can to make sure you have a wonderful stay in my home. For those guests new to Airbnb, I especially want to make sure your first experience is a complete success; and for those who’ve stayed in an Airbnb before, I want to make sure mine is at least as good as any.

A little about me. I'm sort of retired, after 20+ years as a software engineer, and a couple of other careers as well.

Things I like to do: travel, hike, cook, garden, bicycle, train dogs, go to opera, ballet and the theater, and spend time with friends and family. I especially like DIY projects, on my own home.

I've been interested in California Native Plants for a while and recently I've started training as a Master Gardener so these days I spend a lot of time on plants and gardening. Another of my passions is working with rescued dogs, especially German Shepherd Dogs.

My experience with Airbnb has been fantastic! In addition to meeting lots of new people from many different cultures, I'm learning about those cultures and countries, and finding out about ethnic restaurants nearby that I've never tried. All my 170+ guests, from 19 countires, have been wonderful. I've been very lucky and thank Airbnb for their part in making my experience such a good one.

Several of my guests have found permanent homes here in Silicon Valley and I love to get together with them.

I’m looking forward to meeting you.
