I live with my partner and our dog. The dog (who will not be here when you visit) is outside during the day and inside at night. We have a cleaning service every two weeks and, because we have hardwood floors, the home is always very clean. I am a Department Head of Engineering for a large aerospace corporation. We are extremely responsible and respectful of our property as well as that of others, and expect the same of others. We are fluent in English and Spanish, and speak Italian and French well. We love eating fine foods and can recommend wonderful restaurants that will astound your senses if you like.
