My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a start-up kind of guy trying the corporate world for a bit. I am sometimes snarky but usually mellow. Receptive to people, places and things. Driven but full of wandering thoughts. Simple yet savvy, analytical yet poetic. I'm always looking for the art in what I do. I may have a 9-5 job, but I have had many sleepless nights, fleshing out an idea, a design, a story or at certain times even a poem or a song. When I travel, I never need nor want a travel plan. I love urban adventures, and can embrace my drunken nights just as much as the sober ones. I prefer to be challenging than plain nice. I am likely to be more liberal and open-minded than I appear. I wouldn't say I am free-spirited, but perhaps I am slowly working my way there.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The last few years have been for me a time of soul-searching, experimentation and slow but steady growth: taking on less conventional work in tech in favor of research and social-technological entrepreneurship, backpacking and expanding my knowledge of additional languages, trying to be more dedicated to making music (and alas, failing miserably =-)), challenging myself with entirely new passions (a fusion of martial arts, meditation and related practices) and exploring a bit of my spiritual side. Been good, been bad, got worse, got better... and made some wonderful friends in the process. Nevertheless, I feel that there are still too many things that I don't fully understand in myself and in others and that I am still anxious to explore further.

After close to two years of grad school in Ann Arbor, I moved to the bay a little over a year agp to start a new adventure. Looking to share tapas at the new hip place around the corner, find the perfect pho in the tendernob or perhaps form a neo-alternative-progressive-folk band? Do holler.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empowering others and making others feel accomplished or better about themselves. (I am an ENFJ. That is what I do.)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Music: I love mixing it up. Some names for the sake of namedropping: Patty Griffin, Black Sabbath, Gillian Welch, Led Zep, Dave Matthews, Miles Davis, Stone Temple Pilots, Duke Ellington, The Fugess, Tori Amos, Beirut, Ani DiFranco, José Gonzales, Hendrix, Fiona Apple, Bat For Lashes, Frank Zappa, Ojos De Brujo... And, of course, tons of obscure bands most hipsters never heard of (*tongue in cheek*). Trying to improve my Spanish through the likes of Amaral, Julieta Venegas and Manolo García.

Movies: contemporary classics such as Good Will Hunting, Alien, As Good As It Gets, Man On The Moon, America History X, Leaving Las Vegas, Ten Things I Hate About You, The Princess Bride and Back To The Future. Other classics, thrillers and cult films, from This Is Spinal Tap to Kill Bill. Utterly silly, root-of-all-evil rom-coms featuring Meg Ryan such as Sleepless In Seattle and You've Got Mail and other random ones such as Kissing Jessica Stein and (500) Days Of Summer. Assorted major foreign films such as La vita è bella (Life Is Beautiful), El secreto de sus ojos (The Secret In Their Eyes) and the Three Colors trilogy. I am also an avid fan of student and indie films.

Books: I am pretty picky. I barely read fiction these days, although growing up I did read modern classics of such authors as Orwell, Golding and Hemingway, and later in life works of authors such as Chekhov and Kerouac. Nowadays I am more inclined to read non-fiction books that spark my interest in a variety of topics such as marketing, data science, psychology and strategy (e.g. Daniel Goleman's Emotional Intelligence, Dan Ariely's Predictably Irrational to name a couple - just popular science, nothing fancy). I adore poetry by such poets as Frank O'Hara, Emily Dickinson, Rilke, Plath, Bukowski and Sharon Olds.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A smile on a dog.
Free hugs.
Stolen kisses.
Timeless four-chord songs (and the musical instrument to create them or play them).
Wicked conversations over beer or whiskey.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Not copying anyone else's line for this box. I thought it was an original thought that I spend much of my time thinking about my next meal. I stand corrected.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Shooting the breeze with friends, shooting the breeze with perfect strangers, saving damsels in distress and then turning in early, or alternatively staying in and playing "spin the bottle" or "seven minutes in heaven" or listening to Led Zeppelin and Stones records and getting high in my parents' basement.

(Okay, so with the exception of the song Wild Horses I don't even like The Rolling Stones, my parents never had a basement and I wasn't really a teenage slacker in the '70s, but hopefully you catch my drift.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've been a bad, bad boy.

Also: I read profiles, I reply to messages, and I don't use Tinder.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You are a member of NOFA (No Flakes Association) in the bay area. That means you remember how you were taught in kindergarten to be kind to others, even if they're supposedly just tiny virtual boxes in your world. Some people here seem to forget that.

You are a rad poet or an artist of any sort, a social or political scientist versed in faux pas, or just someone who has nothing in particular to say but knows twenty different ways of saying it.

But seriously, you should just offer to hang out in real life (just say that you think I am cool and offer to buy me a drink - I will totally fall for it) because that is the kind of sincerity and down-to-earthness that I appreciate.

**Wait, so sex is not the only tunnel to a belief in objective reality?...

***You should trust your selfies. This is why.

****Love is not who you were expecting. This is why.

*****Falling (or not falling) in love is a matter of choice. This is why.
