I was born and raised in Oakland and love this amazing city! I work at UC Berkeley Haas School of Business and my husband, Patrick, is the owner of Revival Tintype Studio. We have an awesome dog named Lucy.
I love nothing more than sharing the secrets of Oakland with visitors. Each neighborhood has its own vibe and unique feel and I'm happy to share my favorite local spots-from restaurants, to coffee shops, bars, farmer markets, shops, festivals, and museums.
If you are interested in exploring the greener side of Oakland, come join us on an urban hike. Walking from our front door we can be in the redwoods and a world away from the hussle and bussle of the city within twenty minutes.
I love to cook. Making yummy food for friends and family is my favorite thing to do. So if you enjoy a home cooked meal while on the road, you might be in luck.
My favorite book is "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. Salzburg Austria was home for a year and I've traveled to over 30 counties, most recently Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia, & Thailand). I'm an avid NPR and This American Life listener, but an even bigger Oakland A's baseball fan.
My husband and I look forward to hosting you in our home in beautiful Oakland California!
