I grew up in the Bay Area and own a small business in San Francisco, Modern Hound Dog Training.
In a former life I earned a Ph.D. in Archaeology and lived in and worked all over the world learning about new cultures.
In my writing, I get the opportunity to continue to explore both parts of myself - the Bay Area aficionado and the world traveler. My work has appeared at Atlas Obscura, NPR & KQED, Afar Magazine, Fodor's Travel, Smithsonian Magazine and a variety of other outlets. I'm a Contributor at Business Insider.
