I am originally from E. Washington, but spent my undergraduate years in the bay area - Stanford. James went to Stanford, too, then lived in Oakland for about 10 years. We both now live in Portland, OR. We love to bike ride, listen to music, hike, and enjoy all the delights of summer in Portland. We are excited to return to the Bay area, if only for a short visit and excited to see Mana in concert (a long-time dream of mine). We are also looking forward to catching with longtime friends in the area.
