By night I'm a bartender and waiter in a high end restaurant. By day I work for an Internet start-up. I love hiking, walking and biking, and listening to great music, particularly R&B, rockabilly, indie-rock, jazz, and world music.
I like cool weather best, but I also enjoy hot deserts. I'm very fond of good food and good drink. Countries I loved and want to go back to: Mexico, Turkey, Scotland, England, Costa Rico, Italy, and France. Places I want to go--too numerous to mention, but countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the Arabian Gulf, eastern Europe, northern Europe, and China, Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan, Japan, Australia, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Peru, Russia, are on the list.
I like to cook, I deplore food faddism, and I love to learn about wine. If you stay with me, I will do my best to make sure that you are comfortable and feel well taken-care of. I have a busy life, but if you like to read, you will probably find things on my shelves you will find interesting.
My philosophy is to try to leave the world better than I found it. My manner is to make people feel comfortable, whether I am serving them in the restaurant, they are guests at my table, or sleeping on my spare bed.
