Hello Fellow Traveler(s),
During the academic year I am a high school teacher. In the summer I'm an explorer of places far and near: Alaska, Quebec, France, Costa Rica... and certainly Asheville itself... as there is much to see and do right here in beautiful Western North Carolina.
In addition to teaching and traveling, I am a parent, writer, runner, appreciator of good food, film & music, and a fan of nice people everywhere. In fact, I'm so much a fan of nice people, as best I can I like to share with them the great place I call home.
I look forward to helping you have a great experience discovering Asheville.
