I promise that I'm way less serious than I look in pictures! But
I'm the type of person who constantly loves to improve -
relationships, skills, travel, knowledge - I really think that
there's still so much further to go, and I'd love to find someone
equally willing to challenge one another to share my life
I grew up in a beautiful beach town in San Diego, and then went off
to college in Orange County where I spent 4 years surfing Newport
Beach, and doing the bar scene in Fullerton - it was a pretty
awesome college experience.
I then went to graduate school in London and when I got there, I
felt like I fit in immediately. I loved the international and
intellectual vibe of London, and I traveled to 10 different
countries that year including a month-long volunteer gig in
After living in Los Angeles for 2 years, I moved up to the Bay Area
and now work in tech. I consider myself intellectual, a bit nerdy,
outgoing, great at conversation, and a generally kind and
thoughtful person. I grew up in an amazing family so old school
family values are something I cherish. Though, I'm pretty liberal
and progressive as an individual.
I would love to meet someone who is also thoughtful, kind, and
really wants to experience the world together (I've been to 15
countries so far)!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently a Technical Manager at an Ad technology company in
San Francisco. My other big hobby outside of my 9 - 5 is working in
Oakland with a civic technology group - learning more about Open
Source data. Lastly, I volunteer and work for the United Nations
Association in Beverly Hills - random I know - but I have some
random LA friends.

It's probably my beach town style that I can't let go of. I've
never gone a year without owning a pair of Rainbow or Reef sandals,
and I'll find any excuse to be on or by the water. I'll probably
end up back in So Cal some day, but for now I love calling the Bay

On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I used to just go out to the bars on Fridays like everyone else,
but lately I've been going to bachata and other types of dance
clubs - would love to find a dance partner. I'm also getting back
into a really healthy lifestyle so if you need a workout or hiking
partner - let's connect.

I watched Disney's Frozen more than once. Also I laugh often, but
don't like smiling in pictures!

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Ideally, you're equal parts nerd and night owl. You have a sense of
humor and a sense of adventure. You love California, avocados, and
good wine. You want a family (not soon) someday, consider yourself
at least slightly progressive (clean energy, meat reduction, global
education), want to continue learning in whatever career(s) and
cause(s) make you happiest, and want an intellectual partner who
still loves to get wild every now and then and get down on the
dance floor with the best of them.
