I enjoy traveling to distant and not so distant lands. I have lived in S. America, the Middle East and Africa. I love meeting new people from around the world or the corner. I love trying new food and attempting to make these delicious treats from my kitchen. Open for tips for improving on my pastel de nata from Portugal.
Hosting guests brings out my natural Southern tendencies of making others feel welcomed in my home. I am always happy to share a cup of tea, a story or great recommendations for all the beautiful things in San Francisco. On the weekends, I'm out and about: hiking, salsa dancing, teaching yoga, laughing with friends, meandering at the farmer's market, biking to the beach and finding freezing waterfalls to jump into. There is always an adventure around the bend.
