Welcome! I'm a busy arts administrator and art teacher living in (and loving) Chicago with my two barky, wonderful dogs Lois (10) and Clarence (2-1/2). Live music, films, and art of all kinds are my favorite things, next to bicycles and dogs. I enjoy rare travel, hosting, cooking, and meeting new people, and I hope to help you fall in love with this great city and its neighborhoods during your visit. My place is very homey and comfortable, and just a short train ride to downtown.
