Personal: I live in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a nature enthusiast and enjoy the regional parks next door. I have tried learning photography but haven't found much time for practice. I like to read the latest developments in science. I often find myself spending quite a bit of time following politics, both domestic and international. I also like to be somewhat active at local level. I founded a neighborhood group and have been running this online group of over 2500 members since 2002.
