It has been 15 years and counting in beautiful idyllic Park Slope for me after transplanting from Miami, FL, and Boston where he lived for a few years while attending Berklee College of Music. I am most definitely a Brooklynite now!

I am a naturalist at heart who would like to reduce my footprint on the planet. I compost and have planted many trees but I still have not reached the level of balance with the Earth that I need and want to reach. I'm a respected music professional involved in several projects including OLA FRESCA, an 8 piece Latin band that combines elements of classic and contemporary Cuban music with Salsa and world beat influences. This occupies much of my time. I love to cook and eat good healthy food whether it is low key ethnic or gourmet cuisine and the same goes for the vino.

I like to get the same special treatment when I travel that I give to guests in my home. I go to great lengths to make my guests feel comfortable and calm so the accommodation I provide enhances the travel experience. I offer a clean comfy space, I help with the luggage and brew tea or coffee, open doors and help hang stuff. I also love to get to know folks just a little and then watch them go off on their own journey around town at a comfort level that I facilitated. Wherever I get the same treatment on a trip, it always makes me want to return.

Deal breaker . Truth. I am completely upfront about who I am and how I live and what you can expect from me and I expect any guest or host to do the same absolutely. I do not smoke and prefer not to accommodate or stay in a smokers home (but we can be friends!) I respect a person's home and their belongings as if they were my own and I expect my guests to do the same completely and in every way.

A few places I've been that I love are; Costa Rica all over, La Gran Sabana in Venezuela, Habana and Pinar del Rio Cuba, El Paramo in Ecaudor and the hot springs there, Paris, Berlin, Denmark, Offenbach, Germany, Sevilla, Barcelona, the Everglades in South Florida, Turks n Caicos, St Martin, Grand Canyon, New Orleans, Virginia Beach, upstate NY, Montreal, Charles River in Boston on a Sunday.....
