I have an immense belief in the goodness of humanity and seek to connect in the most profound ways possible with folks, whether hosting or traveling. My engagement in this experience of hosting has changed my life, sweetened my soul, and opened my eyes. There are very few things in my life for which I believe these things to be true.
I have a wonderful, feels-like-home 3 bedroom house in an incredible location in Austin. It's an eclectic home, in an incredible location and is amazing for spending time in a quiet, safe neighborhood that is also incredibly close to the old and the new, the hip and the storied, the historical and traditional inheritances, attractions, venues, institutions, restaurants, etc. in Austin.
I am an older student/scholar at the University of Texas and work part-time for the YMCA and in both Custom Furniture Building and Software Development for two local companiens. I am an avid reader, a lover of warm hearts and smiles and have a deep love of learning. I am deeply respectful of people, space and persuasion. I am honest and empathic. My interests are broad, always seeking to learn from those that know more than me about anything they are passionate about. I, too, am available to share my life--my experiences, thoughts, heart, knowledge, property, space...
My beautiful girlfriend, Nikki, is in Austin for the summer. There may be some times where it would work best and be most accommodating for Nikki to greet you when you arrive if I'm away for the moment when you come into town.
