Walking in high heels made my feet hurt. There had to be a better way. So now I bike around San Francisco trying to look as stylish as possible. In a helmet.

Does that spoil the effect?  Pshaw!

Me = INTJ according to those ersatz Myers-Briggs tests you can take on the internet.

I'm a Silicon Valley townie, but I've also lived in Honolulu, Portland, Nashville, New York City, Milan, and Florence. San Francisco has been my home for the past couple years and I've fallen in love with the city all over again.

I have a background in Fashion Design and native advertising. BikePretty is my full-time labor of love.
