I love to experience other places by interacting with locals. I live in San Diego, CA where I was born and raised. I have also lived in Bayonne, France (for a year in high school), and I spent three years in Japan (one in college, two teaching English at ALTIA Central). My girlfriend also enjoys traveling, and we plan to go many places together. I love classical music, sports, and locally sourced food. I'm a budding beer connoisseur and wine enthusiast.
