I am a software engineer, communicator, and business developer living in Austin, Texas. I retired from IBM in 2007 and have enjoyed spending extra time on my interests, family, and friends. I have a daughter, son, daughter-in-law, and grandson who also live in Austin and other family members who live in Texas.

I have always loved the condo. My husband and I bought the condo in 2003 when my husband was on a temporary assignment in San Diego, California. When my husband passed away in 2008, I decided to keep the condo, with me visiting the condo between rentals. This is an ideal arrangement for me. I get to enjoy visiting the condo from time to time, and I also get the satisfaction of sharing the condo with interesting and gracious people from all over the world. I have found that I love sharing the condo with other people, and I love having other people enjoy the condo.
