I am president of an architecture firm that has 30 employees. I live in a semi rural environment with 3 dogs, one cat and one horse. I am an avid bicyclist. I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, tennis, photography, skiing , snow shoeing and reading. I have been married for 25 years with two children. My daughter is currently spending a semester abroad studying at the University of Lisbon and my son is teaching english to elementary and mid school students in Tel Aviv. In the past I have traveled to England, France, Spain, Greece, Turkey, Mexico and Canada. I enjoy exploring new and interesting places and observing architecture as well as the local foods. I typically stay with friends, family or at hotels but a friend of mine has stayed at numerous places through Airbnb which has much more appeal to me. I am very respectful of other people and their privacy.
