About Me
I am a faculty member at Harvard who travels a great deal for work and family. My house has a third floor apartment with separate entrance where I live when i am in town. I first rented out the main house when I was on sabbatical at Oxford for a year. That was such a pleasant experience that I decided to try renting the house again when I came back. Renting the main house also appealed to me because I appreciate living in a smaller space, and the house deserves to be populated by a family that can make use of it and appreciate it. Getting to know tenants who have lived in the main part of the house has been a privilege, as sabbatical homes attracts such interesting and congenial people.
