I love walking to the Ocean Beach pier to take photos of the sunset. Walking and being out on the pier is very peaceful for me.

In my less peaceful moments, I love live music. I like rock music both old and new. Recent and upcoming concerts include Bon Jovi, Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Metallica and Foreigner. Rock on!
