There is no smoking indoors. Smoking is allowed anywhere outside the home. I have a very large, covered driveway in case of poor weather. Please leave sheets and linens on the beds and dirty dishes either in the sink or dishwasher. Thank you in advance for respecting my home and my property as you would your own.
I am a full-time University Professor of Athletic Training and Sports Medicine. I also teach tennis part-time and own a company that promotes live music events. I was born and raised in Opelousas, Louisiana but I have been living in Lafayette most of my life and enjoy giving suggestions about what to do and where to go in the area.
I also enjoy cooking, running, lifting weights, yoga, Tae Kwon Do, and most of all attending live music events.
One of my latest goals is to travel as much as possible. I have backpacked 10 countries in Europe staying mostly in hostels and I most recently traveled for 2 months across the Western United States staying in over a dozen airbnb homes including an RV, a tepee, and a completely solar-powered dome shelter in the Texas desert!
My latest adventure took place this Christmas Break as I toured 3 countries in South America, including Uruguay, Argentina, and Brazil.
I also enjoy talking about and showing off the area where I live ... Acadiana.
