I'm a Santa Cruz native who moved to San Diego seven years ago to attend San Diego State University - go Aztecs! I found my passion for sustainability while in college, and now work for San Diego's top solar power company, assisting local residents in declaring energy independence. I lived in Europe for a year in college and definitely caught the travel bug. I love traveling - meeting new people, learning about other cultures and seeing beautiful sites. Playing with my pup, watching the sunset, sports, hikes, bike rides and SCUBA diving also catch my interest.
