One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

been in over 60 countries.... most places I said: been there, done that... i've learned to slow down and smell the coffee a bit longer before chugging it ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

i teach finance at the university level. i do some research. i blog. i share it with people along the way. i'm open to learning almost anything: making sushi. how to build a boat. how to understand big data...

What I Can Share with Hosts

we are a 5 min walk to the train station ... you'll be in Zurich in 10 minutes... we have a great view of the lake of zurich and of the mountains. we a 10 minute walk away from the lake ..
