I work in digital news publishing. I grew up in Southern California but spent some time living on the East Coast and overseas.
I enjoy spending my downtime with friends and family (nearby), going out to eat, traveling and exploring new places, reading, and watching an occasional funny movie. I'm interested in sustainability, architecture, design, social entrepreneurialism, and international relations.
I love food. I'm a moderate and social drinker. I think food, wine, and beer are the best languages of diplomacy and friendship.
As a host, I'm friendly but I give people their space. I also try to be flexible and accommodate guests within reason and if they ask nicely.
