I am an administrator at UC Berkeley (writer and photographer), and a parent of two college-aged children. I live in the East Bay area with my husband and my father in a lovely three story tudor. While I've never rented a space in our home through airbnb, I have had people from overseas staying with us (Spain, France, Turkey), and I love to cook and eat together. I especially love showing folks our lovely city.

My preference is to travel to places where I know someone so I can experience a foreign city through the eyes of its residents. Airbnb allows me this luxury and perhaps I make a new friend too!

I speak French and Italian passably, and a bit of Farsi and Turkish. I am quiet and respectful, but welcome friendly interaction when offered. I also know how to keep to myself. I visited 8 countries before I turned 21, but have slowed down quite a bit since raising children and taking on a busy job. Traveling is still my first love though.
