I am on a mission to help those struggling with living alone discover that they can share housing. I am the author of Sharing Housing: A Guidebook for Finding and Keeping Good Housemates. I blog at www.sharinghousing.com.
Too many people have consigned themselves to a live of aloneness when as people we are wired for social connection. It's possible to have a good homemate, IF you choose carefully.
Professionally, I'm an organizational development consultant and an instructional designer. The former means that I observe group processes and human dynamics. The latter that I am skilled in organizing information so others can learn it. Naturally I drew on both these skill sets in writing the book.
I share housing in Vermont with one two-legged housemate, and two four-legged ones.
