My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I love people. At its core my life is really about experiencing all walks of humanity. Day to day, right now that means education, travel, friendships, and loved ones. It means standing for something. Then standing up for it. It means a great love of the arts. All kinds of art. I love food, music, and just creativity in general.

I am a west coaster. I live like a west coaster, act like a west coaster, vote like a west coaster. My kids will all be west coasters. But I originally come from Florida.

When I was young I was a gifted kid, usually trying to be the center of attention. I played little league baseball and my family spent summers in Maine and New England. For a long time growing up I loved the fantasy of Camelot and wanted to be the next JFK. In college, I was basically obsessed with politics and devoted a year to working on a campaign. It was a phenomenal time. A great blend of romanticism and naivete. A truly wonderful "education."

At the end of the day, I knew I would want to build something. So after undergrad I drove to California to work in Silicon Valley and occasionally play golf. I knew when I finally decided to go back to school, that I could do it all here and that was for sure part of the equation. Greatest decision I have ever made. We live in heaven on earth.

I am always working on "something." Usually a big idea, or just a small project I think is cool. I'm just that kind of guy. I believe strongly in building something bigger than yourself. I love bringing people together, especially when everyone else says it can't be done.

But I have been around the block long enough to know what I like. When to take a break. And, most importantly, just how valuable a healthy personal life really is. At the end of the day, its actually everything to me. That's how I want to be defined. I will check my ego.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I just finished a master's degree this past summer, but I am basically still a grad student. I am probably going to go forward with a doctoral program in a couple of years. I am going to be an international economist.

I read. I travel. I experience. I'd consider myself more of an astronaut rather than an astronomer. I'm a creative intellectual.

I have two large institutions I want to build while being an adjunct professor. They both center around understanding and bringing people together, and around the core of the human experience. They are a couple of ideas that I started mapping out in my 20's. That fact that I have been able to make them the focus of my life and work on them even more now, I think is just awesome. I feel like I have really found my rhythm.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Being there for a friend, calling them out when they deserve it. Not wasting time. Making fun of french people. Also very good at making fun of british people. turning a botched evening into an adventure. Sex in hotels with cool views. drunk dancing. collecting money from stoner friends that owe me because they can't get their shit together to pay their utility bill. Caring for someone in their toughest times.

Loving someone.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I guess I do tend to stand out. I can be very laid back and yet charming at the same time. I care a lot less about pleasing everyone than I did when I was younger, but I can still work a room when I want to. Definitely spontaneous. Warm. I'm naturally open to all sorts of people. I think most people somehow instinctively read that without me saying something.

I guess when I go out now, its always with a purpose. I'm there to hear music, meet someone, have warm casual conversation, or just get drunk. Usually whatever I try to do ends up happening.

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out living it up. Usually trying to meet people. First Fridays. Seeing art. Trying to find a new cocktail that blows my mind. Trying to get better at dancing. Finding some rhythm. I usually make a plan, but it goes out the window and I end up having fun anyway.

You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You think dating people without books in their life is a complete waste of existence. You're sex positive. Confident. Have your own life that you have built or are working towards. You just want a fling. You have that new habit of sleeping with people you ACTUALLY LIKE. You don't need me to explain why Oakland is so fucking cool because you just get it. You are a good cook or at least appreciate good cooking(I am).

You like adventure and going new places with new people.

I am open to all types of women, but it would definitely be nice to have the right person to come home to. I'm really curious if I could meet my match.
