I live in San Francisco. I'm not sure I have any Irish genes (such a mix over the generations in my family), but the team let me in anyway. I've always been enamored of things Irish. Yeats and Joyce were among my very favorites in grad school.

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, I live in Sonoma County (north of San Francisco). Lifelong Californian but I'd give ANYTHING to be able to live in Ireland!
