I grew up in NY State, just north of the city , but have lived in New Orleans for most of my adult life. I work in Higher Education doing computer tech work, but for fun I enjoy travel, music festivals & meeting people.
My parents are Italian (My father was born there) and I have traveled several times to Europe, as well as to Central & South America, and once to Australia.
I belong to a Mardi Gras marching club with a Caribbean theme called Mondo Kayo. We march down the main parade route on Mardi Gras morning, dancing & swaying to the music, and interacting with the crowd.
I'm a pretty outgoing person, and have hosted gusts in my home with various organizations including SERVAS and more recently Couch Surfing.
