Manager info

Year Purchased: 1996

About: I'm a Massachusetts native who caught the travel bug later in life, I have recently enjoyed trips to Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Russia, and Africa. Art and design are in my blood and both my house and garden reflect that. I'm never as happy as when I have an interior design project in the works or some other creative project. My friends often call me The Mayor, referencing the fact that I have a smile, a joke, or a comment for almost anyone I meet, whether it's at the local coffee shop, the gym, or the grocery store. I love travel and look forward to opening my home to fellow travelers.

Why Boston:
Jamaica Plain is one of the most diverse and vibrant neighborhoods in Boston. A home to artists, social activists, young families, and long-established residents, it felt like a great place to put down roots.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
I do architectural salvage for a living, which has allowed me to acquire a wealth of unique, unusual pieces, from stained glass to mahogany doors. I have spent nearly two decades creating a home that is both functional and beautiful.
