I work in commercial real estate as an investor and consultant to earn a living. I am a dog lover and I am passionate about dog rescue. I help run a dog rescue organization here in Manhattan Beach which is my permanent residence. I love to travel and try to avoid staying in hotels if at all possible! I enjoy staying in private homes or B&Bs so I fell in love with the airbnb concept! I've traveled solo in South America and have also been fortunate enough to travel in Europe and Central America, so I know how much a nice, welcoming, clean place to stay can add to the experience of the trip! I spend a lot of time in the mountains at my cabin as my mom lives in Lake Arrowhead full time, and I love being amongst the pine trees and enjoy the snow, and skiing in the winter, and hiking in the summer.
