I'm a legal assistant working for a medium-sized law firm in San Francisco. I own a classic California bungalow house in Oakland and have resided in the Bay Area for nearly 29 years, having grown up in Syracuse, New York.
I fancy music (with a focus on indie rock and '60s-oriented pop), film, food, contemporary literary fiction and current events (sometimes in precisely that order). While I love to travel, I seldom do so, at least beyond Northern California. A spring 2014 trip to Stockholm and Copenhagen was my first European visit since 1989 and my first lengthy vacation in seven years.
