I grew up in Seattle, worked in commercial real estate in San Francisco before going back to school (studied at Kellogg in Chicago and INSEAD in France). I also used to sing jazz prior to school although I have had less time during studies. I just graduated and am now working in lovely San Francisco again after traveling the world for a total of 16 weeks (what an adventure!).
My favorite travel destinations include home (India and Malaysia), Prague, Paris, Spain and anywhere else with good company! In terms of books, I have an affinity for 20th century literature such as works by Hemingway (the Sun Also Rises), Heller (Catch 22), and Fitzgerald although lately I have been more focused on the Economist to stay up on the world!
As for what its like to have me as a guest, you will probably barely notice I am there in that I won't be spending time in your home so much as out enjoying the city! I am really laid back but keep things clean and organized. I try to be pretty sensitive to the needs of others as well (so generally low maintenance!).
