About Me
After a 30 year career with the Fairfax County School System of Virginia, I retired and moved to an independent living facility in downtown DC. I am now offering my furnished home in Bethesda, MD for academics and other professionals who may be on assignment (or on sabbatical) in the greater DC area.
