My name is Jeanette and I’m the author of Best of the North Bay. I’m here to bring you the best of the entertainment and technology industries. Most noticeably, over the past decade, advanced technology has become more and more accessible to the average person. Growing up, I never would have thought that we’d be able to look up information as easily as we can today. Smartphones, tablets, laptops, and more have made it easier for us to consume media from all over the world.  We can also talk with almost anyone, any time – no matter where they are. I’m going to cover this unique relationship, as well as many other topics, in my blog posts.

My Personal Life

I grew up in the North Bay area of San Francisco with my parents and my little brother. I really loved how suburban it was compared to the rest of San Francisco. While my brother’s main hobby was video games, I loved talking on the phone. Growing up, my friends and I would spend hours on the phone when we all got home from school. I remember how amazed I was when I discovered three-way calling! You can imagine how much I loved texting once my parents gave me my very first cell phone. I refused to go anywhere without it. When smartphones started to make their way into the market, my love for mobile devices was solidified. I think it’s so awesome that they’ve seamlessly integrated themselves into our daily lives.

Although I recently set off on my own journey as an adult, I decided to stay in California. It’s one of the most exciting hubs for entertainment, information, and technology in the United States – why would I leave? Plus, I can still enjoy how nice the weather is while playing around with whatever new gadget I’m interested in. Keep an eye on Best of the North Bay to find out what I’ll cover each month!
