I am a writer/director/actor who loves to travel although I haven't done much of it lately. My wife is the most precious thing in my life followed by my two grown sons, my wonderful friends followed closely by my cat, Jonesy. I love Paris, (but then who doesn't?) Florence and most of all London where I was born. I've also spent a fair amount of time in Hawaii, visited the far east, Canada, Jamaica and Mexico. This year I intend to go to Belize. I can't live without laughter, music, good conversation, books (The best book I've read recently was The Swerve) and movies (Beasts of the Southern Wild knocked me out and I'll happily watch The Third Man any time ). I enjoy cooking - I will eat almost anything - but I'm particularly partial to Indian food. I've recently started acting again and live theater is an aphrodisiac. I'm a light traveler and enjoy seeing new faces, places and customs. My life's motto is, How can I make it better? I believe in the idea of leaving a place better than I found it if that's at all possible. I have never used Airbnb before but have always preferred to stay with people rather than in a hotel.
