I've escaped Catholicism and the midwest in search of more fun. Helping people learn and grow is one of the passions in my life, both personal and professional. I work with very smart tech people, helping them collaborate and play well in the sandbox. On the personal side, I think that healthy relationships help us become better versions of ourselves, while adding joy to our lives.
I enjoy: meeting new people, learning, teaching, flirting, the first kiss, fast cars, flogging, running, camping, coffee shops, San Francisco, Portland, Las Vegas, poker, spinning fire, and driving with the top down.
Work is engaging, challenging, rewarding and fun.
I'm on the lookout for new and interesting people to connect with.
I'm spending just a bit too much time with my laptop, maybe you can help with that?
Helping people grow
I like to think that I'm raising bad jokes to an art form.
I'm pretty good with floggers or flaming poi in my hands.
Short Bus, Inception, Smokey and the Bandit (No, really. Go watch it again it's still fun.), Fight Club, Amadeus, all the 007 films
Live music of most types, I'm especially fond of good singer-songwriter types
Real Chicago Pizza, Indian food, Mexican, what-ever you are making
... right here, right now

Traveling around the globe
Playing poker or perhaps Settlers of Catan
Enjoying an awesome restaurant
Having some other sort of fun :-)
