I am a painter and teach in the arts as well. I enjoy the outdoors whether it's for painting en plein-air, gardening, hiking, birding or swimming. I can't live without my veggies and locally sourced whole foods! I grew up in the beautiful Finger Lakes region and am happy to share it with others. I'm interested in biographies, documentary films, ecology and natural history. I enjoy meeting folks upon arrival and hearing their stories of travel, life and the Airbnb experience.
