I live in San Francisco and am an avid adventurer. Ever since finding MSA I fell in love snack boxes (both healthy boxes and candy boxes), fitness boxes, and clothing boxes, which save me time and help me stay stylish without leaving the house. When not working in the city, I am usually out skiing, rock climbing, or relaxing with a good book.
