What do you love most about Your City? I live in a small town just north of Berkeley, CA in the middle of the San Francisco Bay Area.  I have all the advantages of a university town and a vibrant cosmopolitan city.  At the same time my town is a bit like the Cheers bar.  The shopkeepers and restaurant staff know my name.  Additionally I can walk to over 30 restaurants and rarely have to use my car.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account? My favorite app is tripadvisor.  I travel frequently to remote islands and tripadvisor helps me plan my trips.

My favorite Instagram account is @seacology_photos

What should everyone try at least once? Snorkeling.  I am now an avid scuba diver. The first time I snorkeled the beauty of the coral reefs and fish changed my life and influenced my career.

Where do you enjoy getting lost? On any island anywhere at any time.  Islands are not only beautiful but the people are extremely friendly.
