The other day I woke up and realized it really was the first day of
the rest of my life (maybe I like cliches too much...), I just
graduated with my MBA and I'm here in Dallas getting ready for the
next adventure. I grew up in the Bay Area, was an entrepreneur
there before my MBA, and I'm throwing myself into the startup scene
here, which is all kinds of fun.
Sports are a pretty big deal to me, especially with the two-time
World Series Champion Giants defending their title this summer! I'm
always up for any game of any sort; Rangers, Cowboys, Mavs, Stars,
FC Dallas, even SMU football if it's not too hot!
I'm really into thinking and learning, I'm always trying to learn
new things about the world around me, and I hope you are too. That
being said, I've spent the last couple of years thinking a lot, and
I want to spend more time doing, so I'm looking for someone to
share adventures with.
What I’m doing with my life
Working on another masters degree, and a bunch of crazy ideas
I’m really good at
Jeopardy, I passed an in-person audition last summer and I'm
waiting for them to call me to be on the show. So if you're looking
for a bar trivia partner and can keep up, awesome.
I'm good at all kinds of other random things too, get to know me
and find out.
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes, they change color depending on what I'm wearing
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
TV-wise I tend to get really, really into things quickly. Some
Classic Simpsons (first 10 seasons or so)
Law and Order (if I ever need a lawyer I'm calling Sam
Pretty much all of the FX Shows (SOA, Always Sunny, Justified,
Most of the HBO Series (If you haven't seen Family Tree yet you're
really missing out)
and I'm finally getting around to How I Met Your Mother, Mad Men is
Movies - Way too many to list, but fair warning I hate tearjerkers,
if I'm taking the time to watch a movie I want to leave
Food - I love all kinds of food, but fair warning I really don't
like anything that requires me to spit something out (chicken
wings, sunflower seeds, etc.), or anything that looks too much like
it did when it was alive (fish with the eyes still in, yikes!)
The six things I could never do without
1. Football (The world would be a much worse place without
2. My computer
3. Soda (my biggest vice)
4. Traveling (not really a thing but I would hate to be stuck in
5. Smartphone (yeah I'm an addict)
6. Insert your own clever answer, I'm pretty flexible
I spend a lot of time thinking about
pretty much everything, sports, art, business, politics, whatever,
I love learning.
On a typical Friday night I am
probably watching a sporting event, or finding my way out with
friends. Potentially I want people to think I'm out with friends
but really I'm just rocking out on Rock Band...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
It scares me how much I identify with Ted Mosby, at least through
the first couple of seasons
You should message me if
You're also awesome and you have some ideas for new adventures.
Check out AtlasObscura.com for ideas, I just discovered that site
and have a list of places I'd like to take someone!
