Lives in San Francisco, California
Since Jul 2007
I have finally returned to my roots in Northern California, after having spent the last decade being based in Southern California. I've lived everywhere from Barcelona to Delhi to LA, and I travel about three months out of the year. San Francisco is my favorite city in the world.
