Where you’ll be

Houston, Texas, United States

Older neighborhood with large trees and lots of character. There's a charming park a block away, and a board game cafe in easy walking distance. It's only five minutes to EADO (East Downtown) with diverse nightlife and restaurants. There's a convenience store around the corner, a Walmart nearby, and a Whole Foods about 10 minutes away.

I teach philosophy at University of Houston. I'm also a gardener. I travel when I can, seeking intellectual stimulation and a bit of adventure.
