Jim was born in Oakland and with the exception of his 7 years in the Air Force, has lived in the San Francisco Bay Area his entire life. He is an avid fan of San Francisco and its surrounds and enjoys the beauty, culture and diversity it affords. He enjoys being able to take day trips to the ocean, the desert or to some of the highest peaks on the continent. He likes having the ability to travel from a metropolis with millions of people to a quiet spot with only nature around him within a few hours of driving time.
Coming to the San Francisco in the mid-70’s, Zee brought with her a keen interest in people, lifestyles, food, travel and culture. The Bay Area afforded her opportunities to explore the outdoors, the great culture of the City, and to develop deep relationships with people from a wide variety of lifestyles. Now retired from a career first in the hospitality industry and later as an administrator in public higher education, she is actively pursuing her love of food, people and places.
