I grew up in a small town in Northern California and have lived in the Bay Area for the past 13 years. I love living in San Francisco and working in Silicon Valley. However, my ideal day would involve less work and more time hanging out in the city. I'm happiest when I'm outside doing something active, spending time with friends, eating really good food or listening to one of my favorite bands. I enjoy traveling the world or just driving up to Tahoe for the weekend to go skiing, running along the SF waterfront and up the hills, baking my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe, hosting a dinner party for friends and watching my beloved Giants at the ballpark as often as possible. Above all, my family is the most important thing in my life.
