How do you measure happiness? The ratio of laughing to hours in the day.

Most Saturday mornings, you can find her: Trail running on Marin hills.


Tell us a secret: I eat grapes in the store. Like pick them off before they are washed.  Crazy, I know.   

How about something crazier? I did the Alcatraz swim (1.5 miles in the Bay) without training.  It all worked out. But the water was cold.

What is irresistible? That second of eye contact that is held just when we both should look away. 

Sex APPeal: Hinge.

Favorite date spot: Doloras park on a Saturday afternoon.

The first person you call after a date is: My twin sister.  We're fraternal, so there is no swapping dates unfortunately, but she does get the low down.

Love is: Admiration
