My wife tells me that I was built for relationships. I enjoy getting to know the diversity of people that I share this earth with. I love to travel and engage in other cultures, customs, and foods. One of my favorite things to do is get lost in a new city, exploring the smells, sights, and sounds that fill the air. My top 5 cities so far are Tokyo, London, Florence, Malawi -Malaysia, and Vancouver. I am really easy going when I travel and prefer staying with locals-soaking in the local lore and tips on how to best engage my context. I am a very organized person that likes to have clear expectations on most things I do so that my time, energy, and money can be maximized! I respect other's values and opinions and hold to a "listening posture" especially when I travel outside of my own context. I value and care for my possessions and expect all guests to hold to the same practice.
