I live in San Mateo with my fiancee and two cats. I worked as a mechanical engineer for several years, and now I am getting ready to start a civil and environmental engineering PhD program this fall. I love the outdoors as much as I love a great meal in San Francisco. I have a brother, a couple dozen cousins, and a whole pack of adorable nieces and nephews.
My favorite recent trips: Panama, Vermont, Western Massachusetts, Quebec, Baja California. I work myself pretty hard, so I love a lazy vacation - or at least one that transports me (figuratively or literally) away from responsibility. I might just relax on the porch and keep a pleasant buzz going, or rent bikes and make it out to a few sights (not too many though...).
