I am a dentist and art conservation technician. I grew up in Los Angeles, went to dental school in San Francisco, and have lived in New York's Hudson Valley for the past 15 years. We also spend a lot of time in New York City. I'm married to a writer and we have twin 16-year-old sons. We go out to California to see family a lot, but like to travel to other interesting places. I love both exploring cities and backpacking in the wilderness. We are neat and quiet guests. We eat all kinds of food, like to try whatever's local and fresh. We prefer staying in houses or apartments to hotels. We love to get to know the people in the places we visit. We like to walk and take public transit to get around.
I speak English, a little bit of French, and have a goal of learning Spanish.
