I'm a freelance journalist, and nowadays I write mostly about information security, technology careers, diabetes and other health issues. I work from home, so I'm usually here to help my guests out in any way I can. My boyfriend, John, lives here, and if I'm not here to welcome you and give you tips on enjoying Boston, he'll do the honors!
I'm mad about organic gardening, used to keep bees but don't anymore, and my yard is a jungle full of birds and fruit that I wish the birds would let me eat.
I grow things. The garden is one of the best things about this house. It's gotten a little insane. Growth is a little rampant. It might eat you before you reach the front door. I apologize. Send up a flare!
Some of the most amazing times in my life have come about through traveling or hosting travelers to this beautiful city. I love meeting new people, hearing about their adventures, learning more about where they come from, and helping them have a wonderful time here in Boston.
I've had Thai people help me count the steps out loud in Thai when visiting a mountain temple in Chiang Mai. I've kayaked from Cambridge, down the Charles River, through the locks, out into Boston Harbor, and into a dock outside The Barking Crab restaurant for a lunch of fried clams—a local favorite! I've been to New Orleans to work with Habitat for Humanity in rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina. I've hiked the White Mountains. I've trekked France, I've studied Spanish in Madrid, I've tossed bread crumbs to fish in Greece.
Come to Boston, and I'll do everything I can to make sure you make wonderful new travel memories here, dining under my grape arbor, visiting your children's college, walking the Freedom Trail or whatever else you wind up doing!
