I am originally from the east coast but moved to San Francisco 18 years ago. I love this city -- it's a magical place with a collective spirit of diversity, creativity, and open-mindedness.
I'm currently getting my PhD in sociology where I focus on elites and education. I'm also a freelance photographer for a textbook called Seeing Sociology.
I love movies, mostly independent films and documentaries. My favorite films are The Station Agent and American Beauty. My favorite documentary is Baraka (I have all these movies here which you are welcome to watch). Lately I'm into watching LGBT short films - attended Frameline Film Festival here at the Castro just a few days ago.
I love to travel. I have driven across country twice in the last few years. My most recent international trip was to Cuba. I love meeting new people and enjoy hearing about people's lives. So I hope we will have a chance to talk while you're here!
I love good food too. I do some cooking, but I'm better at knowing where to get good food in the city.
I'm a big music fan as well - in fact I have a guitar here you are welcome to play if you know how since I sure haven't been using it lately. I am also up on the best venues to see music in the city if you're interested in that.
