I spent two years in Atlanta and believe it or not, I actually like the humidity. Something about those warm nights and amazing thunderstorms really captivated me. I also spent two years in Boston where I ate fabulous Italian food in the North End and spent weekends sailing with friends in Boston Harbor. I enjoy taking adventure vacations and some of my favorities include the Galapagos Islands, climing Mt. Fuji and Kilimanjaro and hiking the Inca Trail.
These days I enjoy running, hiking the bay area trails, pilates and yoga.
Oh and sometimes I am really lucky. Last year I won the NCAA basketball tournament for my neighborhood without knowing anything about basketball. I made my picks in two minutes before the 9AM deadline. It was a total fluke, never to be repeated but fun just the same.
I love to read and usually have a stack of books by my bed. Some books I have read recently include When Breath Becomes Air, Me Before You, Drive, All the Light We Cannot See, A Small Indiscretion, Wine Bar Theory, A Constellation of Vital Phenomena (which I couldn't quite finish) and anything by Malcolm Gladwell, whom I just saw speak. I also love to read The Week magazine on my train ride into SF.
