After four and a half years living in San Francisco, I’ve fallen in love. This is the best city in the world and we know how to have fun. I’m such a fan of fun that I decided to start renting out Skeeball machines for parties, events and tournaments. I even went so far as to build a Skeeball trailer, it’s at SoMa StrEat Food Park.

Best money saving tip: Setup a recurring deposit into a savings account. It will become a part of your budget. Just kidding, become friends with your favorite bar tenders.

Most expensive thing you’ve ever bought: My scooter.
How’d that feel?: Liberating. Wind in your hair. Parking is a breeze. See the city from a new angle.
Favorite cheap eat: Super baby burrito from La Corneta. It’s a great value and the perfect sized burrito.
Favorite dive bar: Delirium. Drinks. Dancing. Video Games. Pool. Perfect.
Best deal you’ve ever gotten: $200 off my Mission bicycle. My previous bike was stolen and they sent me a “sorry for your loss” card.

If you woke up a millionaire, what’s the first thing you’d buy?: The taxidermied Tiger from Paxton’s Gate.
