I'm a native Californian who lived in Toronto, Canada for decades. I've traveled to Asia and Europe and to some really cool places: Hudson Bay, Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland and Hornby Island, B.C. I'm a great guest (I leave the place clean and tidy) and an even better host (I try to anticipate my guests' every need yet respect their privacy). I love good food and good books and couldn't live without an Internet connection. I run, bike and hike and am a devotee of Iyengar yoga and a certified Gyrotonic instructor — there is a machine on the premises so let me know if you'd like an introductory lesson. My son attends Syracuse University and is majoring in television, film and radio.
