Born and raised in the East Bay, went to a French school in the city, went to college in New York and Santa Cruz. Since then, I've lived in Oakland (during grad school), Italy, and now in SF. I've travelled to over 20 countries and counting (dangerous addiction), but there's really no place like home!
I have this completely hippie fantasy of owning a little cottage in West Marin one day that has a garden and animals roaming around and a work space in the back where I charge ridiculous amounts of money per hour for giving advice to people....ahhh, wouldn't that be nice?
For now, I'm happy to be able to afford my own place by golden gate park (with a free parking garage, washer/dryer, and dishwasher of my very own - woop woop!) and to get summers off.
Lately, I've also been doing a lot of hiking (with my little buddy, Elsie), swimming, yoga, flamenco dancing, and volunteering (at a child abuse hotline). Definitely can't complain.
