I am ambitious, uncompromising, and insightful. Something of a
dreamer and a realist. Originally from New England, part of me will
always call that home.
I spend the majority of my free time these days on a bike or
working on a bike, riding about 100mi per week when I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to find that elusive work-life balance. Spent the last 15
years working too much, now I've over compensated on the life side
a bit. :) Looking to do a century ride over Mt Hamilton this year,
so putting in a lot of time training for it.
I’m really good at
Working as a computer programmer by day, third wheel by night, and
very mechanically inclined hobbyist somewhere in between. Bikes,
cars, house, or even just a complicated LEGO set, anything that
involves working with my hands.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Without Remorse, Snow Crash/The Diamond
Age, The Bourne Identity
Movies: Army of Darkness, The Replacement Killers,
Four Rooms, Cars, Better Off Dead, BMW's The Hire
Music: Mostly 90s metal and alternative and cliche
stuff like Pink Floyd and Bob Marley. Who doesn't like ZZ
Food: California cuisine of course.
The six things I could never do without
Bicycle, tools, computer, friends, coffee, and peace of mind.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whether I was really a nicer person when I was young, or simply
On a typical Friday night I am
Sleeping in for an early hike or bike ride or hanging out with
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I watched the movie Battleship and I liked it.

You're into biking in a fairly serious way, and you're looking for
a riding partner.
