Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Born in Brisbane, Australia (near the great barrier reef), but
after 15 years in Seattle I'm a native and love it here. It took me
a good chunk of those years to realize there is a good reason I
haven't left yet.
Traveling feels like hitting the reset button on life any time
stress piles up. I'm a little jealous how worldly some of the
people on here seem to be - good on ya. So far, I've stuck tacks in
India, Thailand, Peru, Australia (cheating) and lots of places
around North America. Not bad for a recovering workaholic, but it's
only getting better from here. Next up is Japan.
My day job is in big data (kind of like the oktrends blog - check
it out if you haven't already, it's great). It's nearly impossible
to explain what I do in an interesting way, but it is creative and
challenges me constantly so I'm happy with it. It's cool that when
my team does well peoples lives get just a bit better and we get to
hear about it right away.
Blunt and opinionated people seem to get me best. My humor
alternates between dry and hilariously bad and I've been known to
rub people the wrong way on occasion if taken seriously. I blame it
on my Aussie background.

Looper, Jiro Dreams of Sushi, anything that makes me feel inspired
to do something great after watching...
