I love people. 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 a great love of the arts, music, food, and people that are different. Previously it has meant politics and startupworld.
I am looking for a special someone. I probably can't describe her, but I will just know when I see you.
What I’m doing with my life
I work on an awesome research project I designed. I think it is a totally awesome idea, but you might find it boring : ). I also teach and do some contract work. I am starting a small investment fund related to my research project.
I'm a creative intellectual. I read and watch a lot of great stuff. I travel. I'm really getting into music. I'd consider myself more of an astronaut than an astronomer. I want to understand everything and I often think that doing something is the best way to understand it. I have spent most of the last five years in the East Bay, but lived in the city and down on the Peninsula. I have basically been in all the "cool" places before other people figured out they were cool.
I'm competitive as hell. Golf is still my favorite, but I have really gotten into bikes and bike touring the last couple of years. I. LOVE. FOOTBALL. #RAIDERS!!!! (they won't suck this year...honest)
I’m really good at
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.
The first things people usually notice about me
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.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
mad men, coupling, the wire, monday night football, first take on
espn. Stephen A Smith, nytimes, gawker.com, celebrity gossip,
anything history, most anything politics, queen, elton john, most
any 80's pop, bee gees, bluegrass, allison strauss, led zepplin,
jack white, beastie boys, most anything 90's dr. dre. etc. good
dance music off sound cloud, michael jackson, foreign films,
erotica, i'm starting to get into electronic music.
The six things I could never do without
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything I do day to day. Are my relationships what I want them to be? Am I being the person I say I am? I think about music, going places, and humanity in general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. Sometimes I am taking a trip. Sometimes I am out living it up. Sometimes I am tired and want to get up early for a bike ride. I always want to enjoy myself and the company I am with. There is a lot to be said of a great meal, a waterfront, and a someone beautiful sitting across from me and talking about something fascinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Any woman I get involved with can ask me whatever she wants. That's what I want.
