Los Angeles native transplanted to New York City for grad school and several years teaching at a private, 4 year, women's college in Boston. Now residing in the tiny city of Point Arena on the Mendocino coast, I'm a writer finishing work on my first "non-fiction novel." I also teach at California Institute of Integral Studies where I founded and edit an inter-arts magazine, "Mission at Tenth." My wife and I have 2 kids and we use our SF penthouse as a pied a terre when we work in the city. In between, semesters, the flat is available for 90 day rentals. We've also worked to develop and refine our "Jewel Box House" in the redwood forest of the Mendocino coast, and we're happy now to add that to airbnb's listings. Add to that our small "Thoreau Cabin," in its own private acre of woods on our mountainside. Carolyn and I like to provide detailed info and local color, along with recommendations to our guests.
