I grew up in the bay area and love it here. I went to school in San
Diego, but realized that SF is my home.
I've had a career in both sales and software development. Most
people are confused when I tell them that, but it kept me really
The best weekends are either backpacking through kings county or
reading a few great historical books. I'm like Indian Jones (
without the old man professor's coat ).
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer at a tech company in the South Bay and trying new
things whenever I get some spare time.
I’m really good at
Making pizza from scratch, using a slow-cooker ( think fall off the
bone ribs) and fixing things around the house.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sharp wit. It's a natural talent within my family and those who
believe they can keep up are more than welcome to join the
bloodbath during family gatherings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies: Scott Pilgrim vs the world is currently my #1 and after
that it's too hard to call. I'm a huge movie buff. From a 10 second
clip I could name over a 1,000 movies.
Shows: Almost anything HBO, Family Guy, Archer, Southpark, Farheed
Zakaria GPS, How I met your mother, Big Bang Theory,
Books: Emergency; anything by Malcolm Gladwell, Walter Isaacson, or
Tim Ferris; Iliad (I probably re-read this at least once a year);
Fast Food Nation. I don't read fiction anymore. Real life has too
many interesting stories, but once I'm through them all, I'll start
back on fiction.
Music: everything/anything ... I listen to a lot of different types
of music. Majority of which lately is rock
Food: everything/anything (except brussel sprouts). I love trying
new foods as well.
The six things I could never do without
A great burger joint
A quick route to some hiking
Interesting problems to solve
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My traveling schedule. Just got back, a couple of months ago, from
a trip to Spain and Italy. The Caribbean is next on my list. I've
also got VISAs to India and Brazil I still need to use.
New recipes and how to incorporate more people into my dining
schedule (making food for yourself is boring).
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out with friends doing all manner of things
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
That's a tough one. I'm a pretty open book.
You should message me if
You are able to get at least some of the movie quotes I reference
You want me to teach you something new.
You enjoy reading (this is important).
