I lived on the East Coast of the US and New York, traveled all over the world and happily moved back to California a couple of years ago to be closer to family and nature. I work in medicine and public health, curious about the world and always happy to explore and share my love for the Bay Area with friends and visitors.
I love literature, music, theatre, art and architecture, urban planning and have loved exploring the Bay Area... While I often venture up to SF or the East Bay to see friends or wander to the woods, I also cherish quiet days in the cottage, birdwatching in my back yard (there are so many humming birds!), reading or tending my tomato plants.
I strive to cultivate a home and space and a sense of community where people, friends and strangers alike, feel welcome and a sense of warmth.
