About Me

CURRENT MISSION

To use my new piano to finish writing a musical theatre piece for my grandkids

ABOUT ME

I love to travel and I also love being home. I am passionate about my family and my work.

I have recently returned from two months in France with ever more appreciation of the kindness of French people.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

The door is open and ready for visitors.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I practiced my intermediate French two summers ago while staying with a lovely family at Beaugency on the Loire River. I intended to see them again this year, but I broke my arm in Paris. I told them I was hurt, and they said, "You can stay in our apartment in Boulogne-Billancourt while you recover. Then you will be close to medical services."

Interests

Education writing -- I've spent the past few months writing learn-to-read lessons for an iPad app. Five lessons, about sixty activities in each. The app was released two days ago and is already in the top 100 education apps in four countries! I'm working with an extremely talented professional team. For more info and to see a short video with me talking (moi! Not bad for someone who doesn't talk a lot), please take a look at http://www.readingraven.com We don't have an advertising budget, so if you can share this with your friends on the CS site and Facebook, etc., we can spread the word. This app can help kids, ages 3 to 7, learn to read. It's phonics based and lots of fun.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I drove from Calais, France to Bucharest, Romania in an English Ford -- right hand drive, left hand stick-shift four years ago. It was truly an adventure.
