My name is Matthew Newnham and I'm in New York this week to work with my spiritual teacher and work with a business partner to launch an online spiritual chanting 'how to' product. Both ladies can provide character references for me, if that would help.
I'm from Edinburgh, Scotland, (website hidden) page here: (website hidden)(phone number hidden). By day, I work as an interim business project manager, but I'm working hard to move full time into helping spiritually minded people get their work out in the world. You could call that 'Conscious Marketing' (only not all that old school "selling at people" stuff). I truly believe that we can all make a difference, and so do my friends I'm working with. Last year, one of my best friends and I published a book called The Wealth Garden (see (website hidden)), sharing the stories of 34 social entrepreneurs around the globe, with the proceeds going towards womens' education in India.
I'm in a bit of a bind this week, as i arrived to find that the apartment that I thought I'd rented was sadly a scam, so I'm scrambling a bit to find a nice place to stay, and yours looks lovely. I'm very neat, and make it a point of being quiet and making barely any impact of having been in someone's house.
I've tentatively booked a room tonight in a pub in the Village, but am hopeful of staying at your place, if that works for you. My email address is (email hidden), and my cell number is (phone number hidden), in case you would be happy to text. I'm heading in to my session with Joan, my spiritual teacher, at 3.30, but will check my emails again at circa 6pm.
Either way, thanks so much for your time and consideration.
