I'm a native to California- grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, college in San Diego and have been living in Los Angeles for 4 years now. I work as a designer for film and live performance and as a result of that have also spent a lot of time in Chicago and New York. I admit to being a complete foodie, and wish I had more time and money to go sailing every weekend.
I believe being a good person is better than being a famous person and that loving what you do is more important than making lots of money. I love discovering new places and believe it's important to take time and vacation in your own city. Some of the best weekend getaways I've had have been within 30 minutes of my house... it's so much fun to just simply enjoy what your city has to offer! However, I do have a bucket list of yet to be traveled destinations: Asia, Africa and New Zealand top that list.... and I will always treasure my travels thus far: the Galapagos Islands, Troncones Beach in Mexico, France (where I learned to sail!), Vienna, Barcelona, Florence, Prague, the Greek Isles, Ireland... all places I love returning to time and time again.
