Hello, it's great to meet you! I lead the community and culture at the Centre for Social Innovation in NYC and work with hundreds of nonprofits and social enterprises on a daily basis.
I love traveling and have lived on four continents (Europe, Asia, North America, Africa) and traveled extensively throughout each. In a previous life I taught English as a Second Language in the Italian speaking part of Switzerland (Lugano) and at a university in New York City.
My travel motto is just go and do it, no regrets. Some of my favorite cities in the world (in no particular order) are : Barcelona, Lisbon, Kerala, Varanasi, New Orleans, Vancouver, NYC, London, Oxford, Zanzibar and Charleston. My wish list includes Iceland, Patagonia, and Brazil. I can't live without great cheese and dark chocolate.
I love hosting people in my home, and also love staying with people when I travel. You'll find my home is warm and inviting, and I aim to be that way as a guest too!
