I enjoy welcoming people into my home in an unpressured way. I want them to have a place to relax, to focus on the things that have brought them to Seattle and to know I am present as a resource. I have some ability to communicate in French, Italian, and Spanish, though not fluent.
Interests include hiking and backpacking, the Fine Arts, anthropology, native plants, vegetable gardening, great food, adventure travel, international development, theology and organizational development.
5 things I would rather not live without: coffee, fruit, family and friends, intellectual stimulation, time outdoors.
Favorite films Serious: Bleu, the Red Violin, Frida. Lighter fare: The IT Crowd (very goofy british comedy).
