Interaction with guests
I expect to be available throughout your stay. If I am not personally available, there always will be someone you can contact who can help you, or who can contact me if necessary.
Other things to note
I have a street parking permit for those who arrive by car. (See "Getting Around" for more information on transportation.) The neighborhood is quiet and safe.
I'm a writing instructor and researcher at Carnegie Mellon. I moved to Pittsburgh from SF Bay Area in 2010 and never looked back. I love art and my adorable rescue mutt, Sheba, and road trips and celestial events and crazy weather and watching my garden grow.
My favorite quote is from Dorothy Parker, upon being told she was outspoken: "By whom?"
