Personal: I live in the East Bay (San Francisco, California). I am a nature enthusiast and enjoy the regional parks next door. I am trying to learn photography but don't find much time for it. This hobby demands a lot of practice and patience. 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 2000 members since 2002.
