I love living in San Francisco and take advantage of all that it has to offer: symphony, opera, ballet, modern dance, world class art museums, the Giants, theatre, jazz, proximity to the wine country, beaches, I would love to show off my city to you from an insider's point of view. I like to cook, especially pasta. I enjoy exercising - cardio-kickboxing, ballet tone, and aerobics keep me in shape so I can enjoy the many cuisines my city has to offer! I enjoy hiking, and music. I play recreational piano so if there is a song you want to hear and I have the music, I'll play it for you as long as you promise to sing along. I love to travel and hear your travel stories. I speak several languages, none fluently but enough to get around. I have lived for a year each in Austria and Italy, and have traveled extensively in Europe. For over 30 years I held various public and social service management positions but am currenly retired and volunteer in the community.
