From Menlo Park and Redwood City, CA. I lecture at Stanford University and am an educational research consultant. I enjoy reading, hiking, kayaking, bird watching, knitting, eating, exploring! Looking forward to learning how to snorkel and visiting warmer places. I've explored all over Western and Eastern Europe (have spent way too much time in Russia), have traveled to Asia (my favorite country there is Japan), enjoyed Chile and visiting Machu Picchu in Peru, and had my best all time traveling experience in Kruger National Park in South Africa.
