About Me
Our family lives in Berkeley, California, United States. We love to hike, play sports, ride our bikes and get together with family and friends. We have traveled the world, including to Asia, Central America, South America, Africa, and Europe and have lived abroad. We enjoy visiting new places and meeting new people. We are transplants from the Midwest and Northeast of the United States having moved to the San Francisco Bay Area for work and graduate school at the University of California, Berkeley. We work in the non-profit sector on education issues (pre-K through higher education) and the environment.

My wife and I are just winding up what ended up a ten-month rental. It's been great. The apartment is roomy, tastefully decorated and well equipped and being on the second floor means it has wonderful natural light. Its location a block-and-a-half from San Pablo meant that there were six restaurants within leisurely walking distance that we enjoyed, not to mention easy access to public transit. And Michael and Laura were fabulous landlords, always responsive to whatever we wanted or needed. Excellent Grandrew 6/28/2016 2:33:00 PM
