I'm a Chicago native of French descent who spent most of my summers in Burgundy and southern France as a child. I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife for the last eight years, working in tech, in career that's included tech consulting and product management, in startups as well as large companies. Today I work at a Silicon Valley startup at a company founded in Sweden, and love the work and the people. I love to travel, and have a great fondness for languages and culture.
I am a respectful guest who will choose reading over television, hiking over a baseball game, and a laid-back evening with friends over a night on the town.
