I'm a tried and true Southern Californian. I like fresh air and bike rides and hikes and trips to the farmer's market on my fat tire bicycle. I am an author and teacher. My partner and I travel to places where we can hike and ride our bikes, usually Italy or France. We like to be comfortable and have nice accommodations and hosts, good pillows and the like. I also am a savory pie baker, not so much the sweet pies, but I like a good hearty comfort food pie. They somehow make everything in life better.
