I live in Missouri now (July 2013), but have lived in Northern California the past 8 years. I am an art curator and stay on the Westside of LA often to visit my 18 year old son who lives with his dad near Pico and Beverly Glen.
I like clean cotton sheets/bedding and towels, chemical free environments, access to washer and dryer, and art on the walls!
I've traveled a lot, England, Wales, France, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Turkey, Taiwan, Zimbabwe, Costa Rica, Bali, India and Mexico. Some of my favorite places in the USA are Santa Fe, New York City, Berkeley, Seattle, Portland, Kauai, Northern Arizona, New Mexico and Northern California. I love driving through the southwest for long stretches with vast landscapes. I also love big cities with mass transit and nice architecture and history.
As a guest I am somewhat quiet although friendly and thoughtful. I like privacy.
I lived in the Los Angeles area for over twenty years. I believe I have grown to like living where there are less people and more green space! I guess deep down I am somewhat provincial. I come from farming roots in Southwest Missouri.
