About Me
Hi, I am an MIT alum and I work as an independent editor of academic writing (mostly science and philosophy) for publication. I am from Florida and have also lived in Oxford, Paris, and Kailua, Hawaii. I am a big fan of visual art. The place listed is my condo, but I also live in Cambridge, so if something comes up, I am usually also in town.

Beautiful apartment that's perfectly situated between Inman Square, Harvard Square and Central Square. I was there during COVID and the heatwave, and the apartment provided a place of solace with lots of light, high ceilings and a clever floor plan. It's also near a park by the library that's great for reading. The apartment is also stocked with very useful things, like a pushcart for the grocery store and all the kitchenware I use. The owner, Rhett Nichols, is unbelievably reliable, kind and helpful. She was readily available and flexible to my needs (which changed a lot this summer). She goes out of her way to make a temporary move to Cambridge flawless. I really can't say enough good things. Excellent Amy Maxmen 8/22/2020 12:30:00 PM
I rented Rhett Nichols' apt in Cambridge, MA during some months in the first half of 2020. The apt is amazing, totally sunny and confortable for two people. Rhett is a wonderful landlord; she was always willing to help in a very friend and nice way, even during this very hard times of Covid-19, besides being absolutely fair. I really recommend her apt and her kindness. It was an excellent experience. Excellent Nelson Marconi 7/7/2020 7:02:00 PM
