I'm a native San Franciscan who went away to the Midwest and LA for school, and is now back home in the city and loving it. This is where I belong! I'm a big Giants fan and sometimes get overly upset about trades and contract negotiations.
I like to wander around California finding new places- new to me, at least- and rediscovering old ones. I like to be in nature but don't feel the need to rock climb or bungee jump... I'm more about experiencing nature than attacking it =) I take my camera with me and just see where the roads lead.
I'm a professional cinematographer (which means I do lighting and camera stuff for movies) who has a myriad of interests and day jobs to make ends meet. I love film, but I don't need to talk about it all the time. Six years of film school (undergrad and grad) was enough film analysis to last a lifetime.
I also love children, and one of my jobs is as a substitute preschool teacher. There's something uniquely satisfying about spending an entire day with a classroom of kids, watching what they discover, try for the first time, or even fight about. It's always a new set of challenges, and I'm definitely someone who likes to keep things interesting.
My favorite thing to do at the end of the day is read a good book right before bed. I like history and science, but novels are making their way back into my life as well.
I think my ideal first date would be casual, just drinks or coffee- but if you have a great idea, I'm more than willing to hear it. I don't think there should be a lot of pressure on a first date, so keeping things simple is a plus.
