My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I've lived and worked in several countries all over the world. My most recent misadventure involved having brilliantly outsourced myself to India for 2 years.

I'm from Philadelphia. I like Philly, but I also like technology. Unfortunately, Philly's tech sector seems to have peaked when Ben Franklin invented electricity and bifocals and has been going downhill ever since. So I packed my bags and moved to San Francisco.

Next thing you know, I'm celebrating my 3 year anniversary in San Francisco.

I have boatloads of stories to share and am always looking to create some more.

What comes next?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've recently embarked on mixing things up a bit in life:

I've started learning to code so I can bring my own ideas to life.
I've grown a beard because lumberjack.
I've started doing Crossfit because evidently I want to die.

Life-or-death struggles must be my thing. At this point I've spent the last 3 years of my life working at various companies in crisis, because I think it offers more opportunities to grow through challenges than being Yet Another Happy Apple/Google Employee wherein the closest thing to an existential challenge is "what are we going to do with these huge piles of money??"

I tend to favor action and impact over inaction, so I'm usually the first one to leap after a modicum of looking. Hasn't always worked but it hasn't gotten me killed, sued, or fired just yet. Close though...(update: okay, it got me fired at least once now. But it was totally worth it and I actually wound up with a better job at a better company)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Not filling out okcupid profiles, that's for sure. But I *am* good at:


Growing my carbon footprint.

Oddly enough I have a great falsetto voice. Just ask zinfandelsf

And as it turns out, superlative visual memory.

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: history ones, funny ones. Sadly the two rarely seem to overlap as most of human history seems to consist of finding new ways for mankind to kill and/or exploit other parts of mankind

Movies: All over the map, figuratively and otherwise.

Shows: Arrested Development, Modern Family, Outsourced, Archer, Battlestar Galactica, Children's Hospital, Parks & Recreation

Music: Even Pandora can't figure that one out. It will try alternating between "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" and sing-along songs from Nick Jr.

Food: Yes
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
1. Pants (a pair a day keeps the arrests for indecent exposure away!)
2. A towel
3. My Moon base (timeshare with Newt Gingrich)
4. Overpriced coffee (that's not to say I'm a coffee snob so much as a poor budgeter who doesn't add up the cost of a lifetime supply of Blue Bottle coffees)
5. The Internets
6. Freedom (I've had my taste of living under a dictatorship and its superficial bans on Facebook and Twitter are nothing compared to the insidious sense of powerlessness, resentment, and passive, defeated despair that make themselves felt every waking hour. Seriously, freedom is pretty rad)
7. Someone to help me count to six; I tend to overshoot it when left to my own devices (math is not my strong suit; I probably had the most lopsided GMAT score in recorded history)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
A lot of things, all over the map. I am a poster child for scatterbrain thinking and living. On the plus side, multitasking comes naturally to me. On the minus side, so does forgetting things. If I forget our anniversary I will point to this very sentence and say you were warned.

Some common threads of thought are usually:

-Aesthetics, design, and the principles behind them. I appreciate and occasionally obsess over well-designed and beautiful things, be they manifested in a building or a piece of technology. I want to look at it, hold it, marvel at its details and try to understand just why it had to be that way and could be no other. My aesthetic preferences are one part neo-classical, one part post-modern, and one-part Zen. McKim, Mead & White is the pinnacle of Western civilization; Le Corbusier the harbinger of its self-destructive nadir.

- Travel, frequently and far away. I've lived and worked in 5 countries, and visited a good deal more.

- The business/tech ideas I'm concocting to make my own dent in the universe

- The sort of vague/big-picture questions like where humanity is headed--questions that are as endlessly fascinating as they are hopelessly impossible to answer.

- My own mortality and trying to come to terms with it. No luck yet.

- Sandwiches. They're delicious.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the same thing we do every night, Pinky...

(someone had to say it)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
wouldn't be very private then, would it?

I desperately want to learn how to play the piano.

I may be partially dyslexic; in a school aptitude test I got 99th percentile for everything except for "visual perception" where it dropped to 16th percentile.

Oh, and I'll admit I'm also available in conveniently double-datable form at brokcupid.

People think you're kind of weird, doubly so for your closest friends.
