Hard working, professional, outgoing and fun with no children.
Committed friend of the environment and big fan of Southern
California and our wonderful lifestyle. Very active, love to
travel, and always up for great conversation. I am generally
smiling and I can be ... well .. sort of a goofball every once in a
while. If you don't like to laugh, I probably won't be your type.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at an investment bank, where I get to interact with really
driven entrepreneurs. I like to be engaged both physically and
intellectually. If you do as well, then we may get along.
I’m really good at
Love good conversation and really enjoy meeting new people.
I've been known to tell a joke or two ...
Being active. Love most water sports. Beach? yes! Pool? yes!
Gym. Not a gym rat but I try to go most days.
And I'm pretty fun.. :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
Height (6'), smile (I'm pretty religious about brushing my teeth
and flossing), sarcasm... my laugh. I'm fairly optimistic... and
overall pretty happy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Too many to name but I'll name a few. Closet nerd and you
can see it in my list of favorite authors, which include Robert
Jordan (RIP), Brandon Sanderson, J.R.R. Tolkien. Series I have
loved include Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Food: kbbq, sushi, shabu, tan cang for Newport style lobster, 7
course beef ...
The six things I could never do without
The obvious and oft mentioned: family, friends, food, water, air,
phone.... not in any particular order.
Music... I love music and something is usually playing in my office
or home. Pandora and SoundCloud are my life's soundtrack.
The ocean... Sunsets, walks, water sports, the view, the
The sun... ah, southern California...
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My job provides me the opportunity to interview people at very
early stages in their companies' development. Consequently, I see
technology and other products five to ten years prior to their
widespread availability. That is one of the more fascinating
aspects of my job. It feeds my desire to be more entrepreneurial.
In answer to the question, therefore, I spend quite a bit of time
these days considering my next entrepreneurial venture. Internet
Outside of that, I travel frequently and would like to visit as
many countries as possible. I have been to most countries in Europe
and Latin America. I have not been to Asia which is a real shame as
I studied Japanese for six months in college.
Anyone want to travel with me?
On a typical Friday night I am
Checking out a new restaurant ... love the hole-in-the-wall places
with incredible food
Catching up with friends at a lounge or club
At home, with good company or good book and a glass of fine
Watching a movie
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm an open book, generally, so ask away. Private thing, hmm...
that I was a seriously late bloomer. (Too much focus on schoolwork
and studying) Consequently, I have a soft spot for late bloomers,
something that is probably not really obvious...
You should message me if
You're up for meeting someone active and fun. I'm still fairly new
to the OC but I'm loving it.
(I've lived in NY, SF, south Bay Area, LA, Manhattan Beach,
I'm open to meeting fun people, especially for happy hours, taco
Tuesdays or good conversations over wine...
