I'm originally from the Midwest but don't think that I'm all polite
and boring and full of potatoes. I actually love to cook and made a
full New Years spread for my closest friends. The Moroccan chicken
stew I made was a hit. I have lived here in the Bay Area for 12
years and love it. Don't see myself leaving anytime soon. I enjoy
many of the things available to somebody lucky enough to live here
- mountains, wilderrness, and the city. For me the highlights are
hiking along the Pacific, spending the day in wine country, eating
at fantastic San Francisco restaurants and enjoying the day with a
fantastic group of friends.
What I’m doing with my life
I am lucky enough to enjoy my career. Outside of work, I like to
spend time with my Jack Russell and friends. I seek out a wide
range of activities (movies, hiking, trying a new whiskey) and try
to vary them from week to week. Next week is skiing (not surprising
I’m really good at
Taking beautiful pictures while traveling
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure what people what see when they first meet me, but if I
were to guess, I suppose it would be my smile. It's big. And
jovial. While I am not the biggest extrovert, I really enjoy
meeting new people and exploring new things. I think this curiosity
shows up in my smile. And then I laugh.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I'm definitely more of a TV person then a reader. I do like to
read, but I prefer nonfiction magazines like the Economist. I
usually get my fix of fiction through television or the movies. For
television, my favorite TV shows include the AMC dramas like Mad
Men, Breaking Bad, and the Walking Dead. I also enjoy comedies like
Parks & Rec, Tosh.O, South Park and archer to satisfy the
teenager inside of me. As far as movies, I love a wide range of
movies, but if I were to choose my top three, I would pick the
Godfather, The Empire Strikes Back and Fight Club.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee, iPhone, my passport, friends and family, a good IPA, and
I spend a lot of time thinking about
When I'm going to get to Africa. Care to come with?
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday night for me can vary, so get ready. Sometimes I am hanging
out with friends at happy hour and enjoying sushi afterwards. Or
during a busy week, I may just as likely be staying at home hanging
out with my dog Maddy, catching up on the Mad Men, or playing Texas
Hold'em with friends.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Nothing. Other than I cool a mean lamb shank. You will have to
discover the rest on your own.
