I'm a native Californian who grew up in Solvang, spent enough time out of state to realize that I missed the sun, and decided to move back to SF where I've been for the past 8 years. I'm a passionate traveler and used to think I was reasonably well traveled (30 countries) until I met my wife. Together we've shared amazing adventures, from New Zealand glaciers, to Guatemalan jungles, to Tibetan treks and Everest Base Camp. Now we mostly try to figure out traveling with kids — an entirely different form of adventure travel. I'm also passionate about sports (baseball in particular), salsa (the food, not the dance), spending time outdoors, and especially my adorable family.
