I am a very quiet individual who travels a lot and can appreciate the hospitality and kindness of others you meet along the way. There is nothing more wonderful then settling into a comfortable place in a new or unfamiliar area. Feeling welcome and at home, but also with space to spread out and set up a workstation are important for me. I love where I live because it feels like the beach towns I grew up in, Huntington Beach and Santa Barbara.

I love reading, have been a writer and teacher for many years and have been all over the world. I value travel, travel guides, travel memoirs, language and culture of others.

There are dozens of movies to watch here: we love our BBC and Jane Austen collections, but also have James Bond, other period pieces and I love martial arts movies.

I have two small dogs that are rescue dogs, a chi and a pom, but they are super cool little dudes.

I am happy to help (if I am here; if not, my asst might be able to) make suggestions on things to do, how to efficiently see the city, restaurants, etc. I have lived here for over eighteen years but have also lived in SF, NY, LA, Houston, Chicago, etc so have context of other popular travel destinations.

I am a yoga teacher and lead a yoga institute, training and providing mentorship to teachers. So if you need a yoga mat, there are dozens to choose from when you get here.

When I travel, I try to be eco aware, not pack wastefully, and try to avoid many of the touristic types of things. I like to go, blend in with the culture and just exist like everyone else does. The public markets, the subways, the crusty smelly bookstores, in Paris, of course the boulangeries. I love the opera, plays, walking around parks, etc.

It is clean and safe and hopefully you are looking for a nice eclectic place to stay and enjoy the Seattle and Kirkland area. Enjoy your stay.
