I grew up in Connecticut. My family is from Queens and my parents' families lived in the same Italian neighborhood.
I lived in New York City for a few years. The internet startup I was working for went bust - and I took almost a year off after that, at one point spending about five months in Australia.
I have been to something like 28 countries and 13 states. You like different places for different reasons - some ones that stick out in my mind as I'm writing this are Denmark and Laos.
My favorite cuisines are Mexican and Japanese. I have been to Mexico and would like to go to Japan.
I recently got a job at an internet startup San Francisco - a city I actually know little about, and I don't have a real place to stay yet. So I want to stay for a few days in each of a few different neighborhoods to see which areas I like. I am also keen on finding things to do and be a part of in this city.
