I am a musician (violist) who has had a symphonic career in Europe, Israel, and the U.S. I am now a professor of viola at an American university, Appalachian State University. I love travel, and hope to enjoy more travel with friends in the coming years if possible. My favorite things to do on travel are visiting historic sites and trying local foods. I'm primarily interested in reading, writing, and presenting/attending concerts. Love hiking and taking long walks! I can communicate well in English, Catalan, and Spanish, and can get along a bit with Portuguese and French. I look forward to travel in other countries and also hosting Airbnb friends here in North Carolina.
