I've hosted visitors from many countries and other states, worked with people from 81 countries, and traveled a lot myself. I was the Foreign Scholar Advisor at the University of California at Berkeley, and worked at a startup high tech magazine. For over 20 years I have been an executive coach and management consultant to awesome leaders and professionals. I enjoy meeting people, walking, bicycling, traveling, cooking, knitting and crafts. I am keen on environmental stewardship, grow tomatoes, kale, and citrus fruit.
I have a small poodles named Mocha who enjoys people.

What inspires you?
Nature inspires me; being in the mountains makes me feel happy and at peace; walking on the Bay Trail and feeling the breeze makes me feel alive. I enjoy meeting and hosting people, traveling, the outdoors, cooking, lifelong learning, bicycling, quiet time, and knitting.
I have hosted people from many different countries in my home dating from before Airbnb started its business. These experiences have infused my life with great joy and friendships.
I enjoy hosting people who have been verified by Airbnb and tell me a little about themselves and the purpose of their visit. It is a pleasure to provide non-smoking guests with healthy breakfast and a peaceful place to rest and relax from sightseeing, conferencing, studies, work, or visiting family and friends. Some of my guests have become dear friends.
When I travel, I like to experience life as the residents do. I try to learn some phrases in the native language and always enjoy learning to cook some food characteristic of your home country.
I've worked with people from around the world, have been an editor-in-chief of a high tech magazine, and written and illustrated a book for kids. I am an executive coach working with executives and professionals for over 20 years, in companies like Apple, Oracle, Sandoz Pharmaceuticals, HP, Sony, Illumina, government agencies, higher education and non-profits. My stays in Germany, Ireland, Denmark, Spain, Italy, France, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Norway, Belgium, The Netherlands,, Scandinavia, China, The Philippines, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Mexico, Canada, Costa Rica, and Senegal have enriched my life.
I don't smoke, can't be near smokers, or stay in places where people have smoked. I don't drink much alcohol. and don't like loud music or loud parties.
I'm the kind of visitor who doesn't want to impose on my host. I clean up after myself, and like to leave your place as nice or better than I found it.
I speak a little Spanish and Mandarin Chinese, and can understand some German and Cantonese.
I look forward to meeting all my guests and hosts!
