I live and work in San Francisco at the moment but I grew up in New York State... mostly. I rarely stay in a single place, but I like the idea. I write software for a living which is becoming and more and more cliche where I live.
I have curiosity about many things in life, perhaps too many. I find it difficult to focus on a single pursuit and instead find myself chasing many threads, which makes me familiar with a lot of subjects but master in very few, if any.
I love traveling with a bit of an independent spirit, I rarely enjoy structured tours and would instead prefer to wander and chance upon knowledge more naturally. I'll probably have a map on me, but try not to use it unless I'm crunched for time, which is another thing I try to avoid. I love freedom and getting off the beaten path. I don't mind following the tourists for a while but really enjoy myself when I find myself far from the crowds experiencing a slice of life only the locals would find familiar.
