I am a native of California and have always lived on the coast. I have lived in San Francisco for the past 20 years and still enjoy exploring the neighborhoods and restaurants in my little city.I enjoy the out doors and exercise having spent many years hiking, surfing, rock climbing and swimming. I am trained as a Geologist and and work in the computer industry. The center of our family are three outstanding boys ages 10, 12, and 13. They are bright and engaged in school and music. My oldest is first chair for trombone in his school's symphonic band. All three are avid readers and love both adventure and the comforts of home. Our family loves to cook and play games together and we keep quite an array of homemade jams, pickles, and salsas.
