I am a long-time resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, residing now for many years in Berkeley. My daughter is a college student in New York, so I am empty nesting and loving it. My profession in the financial services is fairly consuming but I make time for creative ventures (writing, photography) and enjoy socializing with friends. Frequently, I host dinner parties and entice my friends to join me for a night out of live music and dancing. I'm also a huge baseball fan and think of the sport as a great reality aversion program! When traveling, I frequent museums and live entertainment events - plays, concerts, readings - and spend oodles of time walking in cities, marveling at architectural details and indulging my love of history.
As a guest, I am tidy and respectful of a host's home, including of the neighbors, much as I am at my own home.
