Originally from New Jersey, I fell in love with Boston when I went to Boston University. Although I have relocated several times, I've always came back to Boston. I am a daily long distance swimmer clocking in about 3 hours adding yoga several days a week. I have the vitality of a fit 30 year old, look like a 50 year old but happy to qualify for Social Security!
I love hosting people from all over the world, sharing my eclectic style entertaining, decorating, baking, cooking, gardening, improving my home as I do in the off-season. This year's additional has a gorgeous new bathroom that I live in (when no guests abound).
Having a long history in the hospitality industry and professional sales, Airbnb is a natural for me. (as you will read in the reviews).
I'm involved politically on behalf of Airbnb. In the last two years I have spoken as an Airbnb host in front of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Revenue Department, the City of Boston City Council and ABCD. What fun to be pictured in an article in the "Boston Herald" and appeared in a TV commercial paid for by Airbnb!
Aside from all that I love going to independent moves, reading, going to the theater, concerts and could walk 6 miles to avoid driving in traffic (time permitting).
I am currently single and hopeful. Maybe I'll meet my solemate through Airbnb!
