30-something that loves to travel, bike, read, learn, explore, garden and cook. I spend most of my time in the Bay Area and the rest traveling for work and for fun. While I work in plant biotechnology, my dream profession is adventure botanist (like Indiana Jones, but for finding rare plant species). I'm an easy-going guest/host, equally comfortable in the middle of the city or the middle of the Amazon. My goal in travel is to learn, see, do and eat anything and everything unique to my destination.
