I try to maintain a quiet and clean space. I enjoy having dinner together or going to a movie or having a beer. I want you to feel as this is your home and be responsible with items you use. In the winter I often have a wood burning fire place burning and my guest is always welcome to have a glass of wine or cheese and sit by the fire. I am well read and have an extensive library and subscription to the Sunday NYT, Atlantic Monthly.

I have lived in Madison for 12 years. I was also a student here in the mid 1970s and am a native of Wisconsin.
I have also travelled to and lived around the world. I know what it is like to land in a new place. If you are arriving by air or bus, I try to be availabe to pick you up and acclimate you to the area. I provide information about Madison, bike, bus and area maps to help people navigate.
I have even taught one guest to cook and another to make pie. You are welcome to come on walks with Max my 7 year old lab, meet my friends and have ice cream! I enjoy living here and am happy to share my space and time.
