I am an urban planner by profession, avid traveler by passion living in beautiful and exciting San Francisco, CA. I grew up in New York, went to university in Boston and Grad School in New York City, and then moved to Singapore for 2.5 years. Have traveled widely, mainly throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and parts of the Middle East; yet, there is still more of the world to discover! My favorite travel destinations include: Bali, Romania, Budapest, London, Hong Kong...and the list goes on!!! My travel style is backpacker-ish (except when I have to travel for business). I love being in off-the-beaten track places to explore the culture beyond the touristy areas, and really get to the heart of a place, to learn what makes the locals tick. I love meeting new people when I travel and believe this is the best part of traveling (also the eating!).
In my free time outside of work, I volunteer, am physically active (biking, walking, hiking, fitness classes), spend time with friends, explore new bars and restaurants, different parts of the city,, frequent events in the city, and just enjoy the moment!!! I live life to the fullest (but also enjoy quiet moments too) and definitely try to live it with no regrets (I call it Regret Minimization Framework!). Thus, I will do/try anything once!
