I was a military kid growing up, and to date have never lived anywhere longer than four years. SF is my home now. I left patent litigation to join RPX Corp and do business development. Its been a fun ride. I have a two year old daughter, who I hope will spend a year in Costa Rica before she enters school. Her Spanish is already about as good as mine.
The house I listed is the end result of a 12 year Odyssey that began with negotiating land rights in high school Spanish in Nicoya, and ended with my dream house in Costa Rica with law school, law firms, New York, Pensacola, Boston and SF in between.
