About Me
Having traveled and lived in Europe for much of my career, I especially enjoy hosting non smoking European and South Americans. I am involved in charity fundraising and cultural activities in Boston, and can therefore easily recommend dining, theatre, and lecture venues in the city. I enjoy in myself and in others an ongoing sense of curious learning combined with practical common sense. The spaces and apartments I own are in the same building, and the location is divine; I enjoy having my morning coffee watching the sailboats on the Charles River!
