I travel the world when I can, but the Bay is home. I've lived here for just over 11 years. My how time flies when you're having fun!
I'm a loyal friend and an open book (you can ask me anything!). Down to earth and grounded. A fun-loving independent introvert who prefers small intimate gatherings over big crowds, big skies over urban jungle, and compassion over judgement.
In 2011, I quit my corporate job and spent 5 months solo traveling around South America. It was a turning point in my journey to go after my dreams and create my own unique path.
In the years since, discovering my own internal journey has become more important than ever. This self-awareness guides me towards a life of self-acceptance, being honest, and showing up, vulnerabilities and all.
I now work as a bookkeeper at an SF-based tour company. I love working in the travel industry and what can I say, I'm a geek when it comes to working with numbers!
When I'm not at work, you might find me doing any of these things on any given day: hiking, camping, backpacking, listening to music, beach walking, soaking in hot springs, on a road trip, training in my martial arts practice, staring at the ocean, catching up with friends.
Music: Brandi Carlile, Old Crowe Medicine Show, Poor Man's Whiskey, Brett dennen, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Ani Difranco, the Wailin' Jennys, the Be Good Tanyas, Chris Pureka... will listen to anything at least once! Another good reason to take me on a road trip :)
Food: preferably local and fresh. Mostly vegetarian, but I make an exception for sushi and fish tacos!
