I'm a Washington, DC resident who emigrated to San Francisco several years ago for chillier summers and milder winters. I'm an avid film photographer here in the city and up and down the Pacific coast. I keep a very tidy and clean apartment with my two roommates here in SF, and I'll be considerate as a guest in your space.
As I've moved jobs and shifted into freelance work, I've taken advantage of vacation time and quiet seasons to take more trips around the area and travel to faraway places. I love spending my time in a city or neighborhood and seeing it as its residents do; the classic touristy hustle of "let's see all these notable places!" has little appeal for me.
One underrated trip I'd recommend to anyone: a road trip from coast to coast in the US. There's big sky country in Montana, Yellowstone, the Black Hills forest, and so many other memorable places that are easy to fly over and miss. The countryside is full of amazing people and incredible views.
