I love adventure and new experiences. Little scares me as I am willing to try about anything provided it’s legal and mostly safe. ☺
I love to travel! In fact, my love of travel has provided me with living experiences in several places including Washington D.C. (my childhood home), Boston and London. I have lived in San Francisco for 11 years and love it! I'd like to think of myself as a mix between an east-coast traditionalist coupled with west-coast liberalism and open-mindedness. But, I’m neither traditional nor a bleeding heart…
I am an adventurer at heart and I absolutely love traveling and exploring new places and cultures. I am fluent in English and Spanish and enjoy experiencing the different ways people live.
I like to spend my free time outdoors hiking, running and biking, which is a huge reason why I love the Bay area so much because there are so many great places to be outside. If the weather is nice, you'll find me running in gg park or the presidio most weekends. I also enjoy a good book and a good movie and just crashing on the couch too sometimes.
I love going out to eat and have a short-list of restaurants where bartenders/servers know me by name. That said, I like trying new things and will give anything a try. I enjoy all types of restaurants from fancy 5-star places to down-home hole in the walls….actually some of my best memories have been in dives where they have great personality, are friendly and serve great comfort food.
Movies: Anything from Scorsese, Breakfast Club, Juno, A River Runs Through It, and suspenseful crime thrillers are always top on my list too.
Shows: Mad Men, Treme, Parks and Rec, The Sopranos and Sex and the City reruns never get old, and does a Sunday NFL game count as a show?
Music: U2, Led Zeppelin, Joni Mitchell, James Brown, Radiohead, Rolling Stones, Van Morrison. I can always find some really great songs on any jukebox and there's 1 in particular at a North Beach bar that I have manhandled beyond belief.
Food: anything that's bbq'd, dim sum, fresh pesto, vanilla milkshakes, and cold beer on a hot summer day.
