Hi, I'm Betty!
Your co-hosts are Ingrid and Betty. Ingrid is a top hair stylist at one of San Francisco’s elite salons near Union Square. She is outgoing, enthusiastic and enjoys meeting and working with people. An avid and knowledgable sports fan, Ingrid and her partner, Jacquay, occupy the remainder of the flat and though they are full time workers can be called on to assist guests when home. Betty, an artist and poet, is Ingrid’s mother and occupies the upper flat with her husband, Joe, a retired architecture professor . After teaching careers in Ann Arbor, Michigan, they have lived in SF since 1988 except for four years in Hong Kong when Joe was called on to help start a new Dept. of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. This project provided opportunities for new international friendships and foreign travel. During these Hong Kong years Betty completed and showed a series of large Paintings, based on images and stories from the South China Morning Post. Betty and Joe have been active in the arts throughout their lives. They were involved in performance arts groups in the 60’s and 70’s and helped establish the Ann Arbor Experimental Film Festival. Being retired, Betty and Joe are available most of the time to answer questions or solve problems. They have travelled extensively during their life and despite living at one time or another in Boston, New York, Ann Arbor, Newfoundland and Hong Kong, are tickled to now call San Francisco home. They know and love the city and will be happy to make recommendations or help in any way possible. However, if you are not looking for social contact, you can stay with here with complete privacy.
