I moved to NYC from Croatia for a job at the United Nations which is where I worked for 15 years. I like to travel a lot and my colleagues recommended to try home exchange. After my first home exchange, I was hooked to the idea of traveling without leaving a big carbon footprint behind. Besides this apartment, I also own a country home in the Catskills area, 90 miles north of NYC. When not at work, I'm either teaching sailing or racing, cooking dinner for friends at home or mountain biking/skiing in the Catskills. I'm currently taking classes in French, Spanish and furniture design.
