From the bay area, born and raised in CoCo County, but have lived in 4 of the 8 counties around the bay. I've been lucky to have worked in San Francisco since 2002 and love being in "The City" without having to pay the rent!
I'm an amateur photographer, runner and triathlete--but am loving the bike now! I love to travel when I have time, especially to explore my local region that we often seem to forget about. When traveling, I like to be in places where I can enjoy the surroundings by running or hiking, and being in nature. And food. I love to try the local food scene, or at least know about the best places to grab a bite. Not fancy, just good food.
A fun fact about me would be that I am known to get up super early just to get a chance to take a sunrise photo...
Some of my favorite things include: great coffee with half n half, beignets, a flat bike/run trail, rivers and streams, unique neighborhoods, local artisans selling their wares....oh, and good people. Yeah, good people are the best.
Generally when traveling I like to have some comforts of home, but I'm not high maintenance. That's why B&B style accommodations appeal to me, its nice to have a host who is not in a "uniform" and who is truly sharing their home with you.
