About Me
I am a semi-retired professor of dental medicine and PhD in microbiology. As a life-long scientist, I have had 4 sabbatical leaves, each time with the challenge of finding comfortable, quiet lodgings. With that in mind, I've designed and managed several small homes close to downtown Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan. Access to parks and public transportation, I realize most visiting professors prefer simplicity and not experience the hassle of owning and parking an automobile. Our homes are close to the University and shopping, restaurants. We live that way ourselves. Less is more and Ann Arbor has an abundance of venues for those who appreciate a quality of life few cities in the US can offer.
