San Francisco, California
I moved to the Bay Area from Boston a year ago. I love being here & being able to access the outdoors year round. I love hiking & am always looking for cool new hikes in this area. I'm also starting to play tennis, a new years resolution for the last 3 years but finally making it a reality this year!
