I'm a programmer who recently returned to America after having lived in Rome, Italy for over 2 years. I've always dreamed of living and working in the SF Bay so here I am. I really like to get to know the places I travel to, so I try to avoid hotels whenever possible. I lived in New York City for six years, so I visit frequently to see friends and family. I grew up in central New York state, and went to school in Boston.
