I am an Engineer and former naval officer as well as a 30 year Bay Area resident. My personality and interests fit well with the diverse nature and culture of the Bay Area and the creativity and inventiveness of the residents, many of whom I'm lucky to call friends.
I enjoy travel, cultural pursuits, eating out, being outdoors and meeting new and interesting folks. One of the best parts of Airbnb is the opportunity to meet and interact with people from all over.
