I am a mature, quiet professional who works at home sometimes. I consult as a project manager, information architect, trainer and writer/editor. I meditate daily--have for about eight years. I do musical improv, teach dance (and dance--social dance), snowboard and play European board games. I ride my recumbent bike around town instead of driving when I can. I have lived in DC more than 20 years, so I know the area!
The most important thing for me when looking for a place to stay or providing a place is quiet. (I'm a light sleeper, need quiet for meditation & also just prefer a quiet atmosphere.)
I also like to cook, I'm especially fond of baking: I just learned how to make French macarons.
