I'm a native Californian, avid traveler, and public health researcher. I'm married to a wonderful French guy who is a scientist-turned-web entrepreneur. We have a cat named Cleo who is pretty much the most spoiled being on the planet. I love the city and the great outdoors equally - my favorite way to see both is by walking. I'm happy anywhere there is music and dance and good conversation. Alternately, I can hibernate with a book for days and never miss the world. I love AirBnB and have only had great experiences - it's now my favorite way to travel!
