About Me
I am a retired TV producer/director/writer, currently teaching writing at CMU/Osher in PGH. I own a Victorian house in Shadyside - I have been involved with rentals of my first floor furnished apt for years - through local university postings, craigs list and AirBnb. I travel extensively, love art history, music, theatre, literature - I paint, golf, write daily. My home is filled with an eclectic collection of art and mementos from my various travels. I love meeting new, intelligent people. I have hosted visitors, graduate students and visiting professors from all over the world. My house is ideally located within walking distance to CMU and Chatham, 10 minutes from the University of PGH, and only a block from Shadyside's main shopping/restaurant area: Walnut Street. I am 68, live in the 2nd/3rd floors of my house. I have a large back yard and private entrance to my furnished rental apartment. Reliable assistance, if I am not present on the premises.
