I am luminous, luscious, and loving.
prior to heading back to school, i was (and still am part-time) a baker and pastry chef for seven years! i've worked all over the city - contigo, tartine, arizmendi, and batter bakery to name a few. i still make desserts for a small restaurant in the mission. although i love baking, it never quite gave me the financial freedom (or the time off) to travel and do some of the other things i really love.
i love the ocean and i try to get out to the beach as often as possible. in yogic philosophy it is thought that there is more life force energy at the beach. i think those yogis might be on to something.
i also spend a lot of time walking and hiking with my dog. right now i'm doing the hills in the city. i love exploring all of Sf's nooks, crannies and stairways. in the last month, i've done stairways at at telegraph hill, mt. sutra and the four hills around the castro. in the past i've been a mount tam junkie and know both mt. tam and the headlands well.
i've done a bit of traveling. my favorite trips were my road trip across the states, my six months in africa and my family vacation to jamaica in seventh grade. so far in 2014, I've been to joshua tree, palm springs and the east coast to visit family and attend my college reunion. dreaming of a trip to cambodia with my mom later this year or early 2015.
Folding fitted sheets
My loud laugh
I love going to see live music. In the last year or so I've seen Princess, David Byrne, Nikki and the Dove, Cat Power and Anna Calvi.
My movie tastes are as eclectic as my music tastes. Old favorites include Annie Hall, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Big Lebowski, A Room with a View and Moonstruck. The most recent movies I've seen are Bad Words, The Grand Budapest Hotel and Nebraska.
I'm not a huge TV person but currently watch Game of Thrones and Mad Men. Some of my favorite TV shows of the past are Friday Night Lights, The Wire, Law & Order (the original, none of this SVU crap), Cheers and Thirtysomething.
My favorite authors include Salman Rushdie, Henry Miller, T.C. Boyle, Paul Auster and Jonathan Franzen. Two of my favorite books are Secret History and The Master and Margherita.
