I live in my favorite neighborhood in my favorite city in the world; I love it here! I have been in the Bay Area for 12 years, with an 18 month stint in India squeezed in there and trips to about 25 countries in between. I currently work in philanthropy, previously as a speechwriter and in high tech. On the side, I do all of the quirky fun things San Francisco offers -- volunteering at the neighborhood Farmer's Market, taking local art classes, writing for a literary publication, and, yes, for Valentine's Day this year, I'll even be heading to The Roxie theatre for a power ballad sing-a-long.
I love the live music here, the always-a-great-new-restaurant food scene (though I'm a terribly boring eater and mostly eat at the same places), the local shops that line Valencia Street a few blocks from where I live. This city truly has anything you could possibly want (and many things you didn't know you did)!
I'm excited to lend someone my apartment and neighborhood for a few months -- they're both beautiful, inviting, and great places to come home to. Welcome!
