US Citizen currently working in the middle East, living in the Jerusalem area. My wife is a writer and former faerie princess. We love to travel and see new things! I make a lot of ricotta cheese, we compost, and challenge each other every day to become better people. We are very mellow travelers, preferring good food and local culture to big clubs and parties - though I generally don't pass up an opportunity to see live jazz. I love live baseball, my wife tolerates that, and we play chess. Life motto is pretty straight forward, live a life less ordinary and help as many people as possible along the way. I love my work because I get to help others. We're very open and tolerant of everyone but intolerant people. We're both widely read English majors, though we don't teach. We want to meet interesting people all over the world, and love Airbnb for helping us with that.
