I'm originally a Canuck from southern Ontario, but I've spent the last 10 years living in the Los Angeles area. I recently moved with my wife to Austin and I'm enjoying getting to know my new city! I enjoy hiking, exploring the outdoors as well as local shops and restaurants.
I travel frequently and like to learn about the cities I'm visiting as much as possible -even when it's for business. I'm always looking for local eats and gems that will enrich my experience. I enjoy meeting new people and hearing about their stories of where they are and how they came to be there.
I'm a light traveler with a carry-on only whenever I can (up to a week!). I need a comfy bed and quiet wherever I stay to get a good nights (website hidden) is optional, as my iPad is never far from reach. Getting a workout on trips longer than 2 days is a must and have a national gym membership to make it easy.
My favorite cities to visit are San Francisco, Billings, Montana, Sun Valley, ID, Seattle and now that I've left - LA. My best meal ever was found by chance while looking for food in San Francisco. It was sushi and it changed my life.
