I'm a college professor who travels a lot for work (and for fun when I can!) I work at the University of California, San Francisco and live in Oakland, CA, where I have a vegetable garden and love spending time outside. I'm a neat, clean and quiet guest, and my one regret while traveling is that I'm so often holed up in a conference room. I try to sneak away when I can to get to know local neighborhoods and food. I'll be grateful to hear from my hosts where your nearest farmers market or natural food store is.
