I'm a writer-editor-massage therapist and former journalism professor.
I'm growing organic vegetables in containers on my front porch, so there may be some veggies ripe for picking while you're here. I also have a community garden plot located a dozen blocks away at which I'm growing even more good, healthful food.
I have a very cute, little mutt who loves having his belly rubbed and his hind end scratched.
I'm big on photography, reading, good conversations, new and unconventional ideas, art museums, exploring quirky and obscure places, taking my dog for walks, gardening, houseplants, quiet, and, of course, travel.
I've lived in Long Beach since 1981 and was the managing editor of the local lifestyle magazine, so I can direct you to interesting places in the Long Beach area. I'm the founder of my street's neighborhood association, something I started because I really love where I live. In fact, it's the friendliest place I've ever took up residence. I know 45 people by their first names in a one-block radius from my apartment, and I've only lived here three years. I'll help you feel the good vibes when you're here too.
My German isn't perfect, but I sure enjoy practicing with a native speaker.
