Multitalented photographer, art director and graphic designer Peggy Wong (peggywongstudio.com) was born in Hong Kong and grew up in locales ranging from Puerto Rico to Connecticut. Needless to say, her worldview is wide. The current S.F. resident, who collaborates with ad agencies and other innovative brands, says her top priority is “to keep myself interested in what I do creatively.”

THE PRESIDIO is my daily inspiration. I started hiking at a very young age and am very fortunate to be living in such close proximity to it. Not to be missed at the Presidio are Andy Goldsworthy’s Spire and Wood Line.

AS QUOTED is my favorite neighborhood gem for grabbing coffee or a quick bite. I love their sparse and modern decor. I’m a minimalist at heart. eatasquoted.com.

OUTSTANDING IN THE FIELD dining event series is truly a culinary adventure. The last one I went to was at a secret sea cove in Santa Cruz. outstandinginthefield.com.

TIMBER COVE RESORT is my latest weekend find/getaway up the Sonoma coast. I stayed in the Ocean Suite with a double-wide redwood deck, complete with a Smeg fridge, fireplace and record player. timbercoveresort.com.
