About Me

I deal with numbers and code during the day, go to a class, watch a movie, read a book, or hang out with friends at night; travel in some weekends, explore San Francisco in the others.

I believe in baseball, films, realism, traveling, learning, truth, probability theory, game theory, kind hearts, soulful conversations and good deeds.

I'm a passionate introvert.

Here are a few logistics you want to know about me as a host:
- Go to "My Home" section to make sure you understand my living situation.
- I *don't* accept requests more than a week in advance since my own plans change from time to time. Three nights maximum.
- I work during the day so I won't be able to hang out with you. During evenings and weekends, I'll try but it depends on my schedule.
- Include the word "livinglow" in your request and tell me why I should host you, but don't spend too much time on it :)


I am an avid movie goer, love to travel, visit museums, take photos, watch baseball, and run almost every day. I am enthusiastically learning French and Italian. I enjoy very much good conversations.
