I've had 3 careers: Spanish teacher, community organizer, and technical writer. My last job was at Cisco Systems in the Bay Area. Now I am a landlord so I'm in semi-retirement. I enjoy reading, meditating, movies, hiking, sharing a good meal and great conversation. I've done a bit of traveling: Europe and South America. Haven't made it to Asia or Down Under yet, darn it. Soon. I'm fluent in Spanish and get along OK in French. Passionate for music. My favorite at the moment is Buika, from Spain.
I'm very easy on furniture and such. I leave things neat and really do not expect anything but a safe and comfortable place to stay. Light and airy is great. I think everyone is interesting in their own way and I've found the same to be true of every place I've been. We all shine on.
