I am a native Californian and have lived in Central California on the coast for a long time. I spend much time in the woods with my dog, love world music and anything that has to do with swing music and vocals as well. I spent many years at a music camp in the Northern Redwoods indulging in the joy and pleasure of music and dance. I have traveled overseas a bit in recent years, South America, the Mediterranean and Asia. I love traveling and meeting people from other cultures and have been fortunate at times to stay with local people when traveling, which is part of why Airbnb appeals to me. I love color and folk art and work a little in the area of decor. Motto? Sing, dance, trek and eat chocolate while you can?
