    I am a single man in my 50s, though many people assume I am much younger. I think I have a very youthful attitude and outlook on life. I am currently self employed and work from home. I have traveled in more than 50 countries around the world and have also been very active in hosting international guests in my home for more than 20 years

    I have traveled in more than 50 countries around the world and have also been very active in hosting international guests in my home for more than 20 years. I am very knowledgeable about the world and especially Chicago. I have a wide array of interests in music, film, traveling, history and culture. I think I am a fun guy to hang out with.

    Help

    I have a small apartment building and I am mainly looking for help in painting an interior back staircase and also some areas in the basement. Separately and less importantly, I am also interested in learning how to create and edit videos from material I have shot on my Samsung smart phone.

  • Accommodation

    Accommodation

    I live in a large two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment in the Edgewater neighborhood in Chicago. It is a short walk to the lakefront and public transportation that can get you to the heart of the City in under 30 minutes.

    I am a fair cook, try to have a healthy and balanced diet and have most of my meals at home. I would be happy to cook for two, but would also welcome my guests cooking contributions if and when they are up for it. I would expect my guest to grocery shop with me and also to help themselves to meals as they see fit.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    There is no shortage of things to do. I live in a neighborhood that has many restaurants and shops, you can walk to the beach or the popular Andersonville commercial district in 10 minutes. There is a Whole Foods as well as a public library at the end of my street. Loyola University is a half mile away.
