Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In Rome for a month for work, looking for locals to hang out with
during evenings and weekends.
I find balance through extremes. On my first grade report card, the
teacher described my humor as "distractingly dry". An east coast
kid with nine years of Bay Area tempering. Two years ago I moved

4) Amazon Prime
5) Information-dense visualizations
6) The occasional glass of extremely peaty scotch
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How to put protein and leafy greens together in a new an exciting
way. The methods and protocols for communication between entities
and systems. Where I would go if I could take another three months
off and travel the world again.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I've got a pretty tight schedule during the work week, early to bed
and early to rise. Friday after work, I'm making dinner and in bed
by an embarrassingly early hour. Saturday nights I'm either headed
to San Francisco, to hangout with friends or watching the stars out
The most private thing I’m willing to admit

I only have one set of sheets and if I do the wash too close to bed

pile of sheets and duvet that I lovingly refer to as my "rats
