Do you dare call it Frisco?
It's San Francisco. There is a first and last name of this fine city that demands respect.
Is there a San Franciscan you look up to & why?
My mother. Because she always taught me I must love what I do; There is no other choice.
Best late night snack is...
Popcorn with tons of butter...actually the popcorn is just a conduit for the butter.
What would you NOT miss if you ever left SF?
Cold nights. I romanticize warm summer nights. I love NYC for that. We get our "one" warm summer night...it's like Carnival in Brazil. Everyone is out...which I love.
Where do you go to unwind?
Into my garden with my family.
You're proud to be a San Franciscan because...
It is where I was born. It is who I am. It is home.
