I moved to SF from NYC seven years ago for a better quality of life and I regret not making that decision a whole lot earlier. I love exploring the majestic beauty of California and the west.
Technology pays the bills but, I studied fine art in college which was a fine choice even though it did not prepare me for paying rent. So, initially I made a living as a graphics prostitute: Commercial photography, advertising and design before walking away to pursue a career as a Geek. Recently picked up a digital camera and began shooting for myself again after many years of self imposed artistic exile. I am liking how it feels.
I love to talk in person. Not so much on the phone. I need to physically interact and I am a really good conversationalist. I ask a lot of questions and listen to the answers. Bloody fantastic at cocktail parties. I am an accomplished storyteller.
I have a two wheeled addiction; bicycles and motorcycles. I love to ride in the city and the country. I even like to ride in place! I have been teaching spin classes for the last dozen years or so.
I enjoy reading the NYT on Sundays and I listen to NPR. I have Karl Kassel's voice on my voicemail.
I am respectful, yielding to the left, opening doors for others and I was taught to say, May I, please and thank you very much. Acutely self aware.
