I find meeting and connecting with strangers to be one of life's
greatest pleasures. I use this site to meet people I wouldn't
otherwise. I love technology when it's used to enhance human
connections—not to replace them. I want to connect with you.
A very near-death experience left me with a deep appreciation for
how incredible and important life is. I do my best to live boldly
and precisely—taking risks, facing and thriving in uncertainty,

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Adapting my outer life to how I want to live my inner life. I came
to Cape Town from Silicon Valley after a successful twenty year
career to share technology education, help grow the economy, and
create new opportunities for people in South Africa. I’m otherwise
making time for people that I care about, spending time in nature,
and dancing like no one’s watching.
Bonus points if you understand this: my #1 love language is quality
time, and the words “bodhisattva” and “tikkun olam" may tell you

I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Attracting the people that matter and repelling the ones that
don't. Convincing people to do things they're scared of. Showing
people how to feel loved and special. Being manly in all of the
best ways without any of the crappy ones. Extraordinary empathy and
compassion. Feeling comfortable in any setting. Building strong
rapports quickly. Mind-blowing sex. Fulfilling fantasies. Saying
"yes" when asked if I want to try or do something new.

I often do random playful activities with strangers, like
convincing them to cartwheel with me and roll down hills or sing
songs or share their ice cream with me. I secretly hope that one
day a random stranger will challenge me to something fun,
especially if they were inspired by someone I inspired.
