I live in the heart of San Francisco. My husband is a native, and we spend time with (and care for) his elderly parents who live nearby, when we are not trying to keep up with our teenage daughter. I'm passionate about my work in media. In my spare time, I like to walk and read--everything from newspapers to mysteries to young adult fiction to the latest novel. As a guest, I'm self-sufficient. I'd like to be able to eat breakfast and drink tea where I'm staying, but can cope if that will get in the way. I usually am travelling for business, and tend to be out by 8:30 and back by 7:30. At night, I can keep myself occupied or would be happy to hang out and chat--though in any case, I will want to turn in by 10pm. I like meeting new people. I have no allergies, and like dogs, cats, cockatoos, ferrets, etc.
