Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
This City is rad. It just gets me.
I grew up in California, went to Berkeley, then lived in Nashville
for four years before moving to SF. Movement is a huge part of my
life - I run (just finished my first marathon in June '13), cycle,
and play in tennis and kickball leagues. I never stop dancing.
Weekends are usually packed full of whatever shenanigans my friends
and I can get ourselves into (ie: wine tasting, Tough Mudders,
Tahoe trips, camping, dishing out our own brand of costumed
vigilante justice, etc.)
I love to travel. In the last 5 years I've made about 200 visits
for work or play to around 90 cities in 24 countries. Most recently
I went to Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, and am always planning the
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
The work in Nashville was satisfying, but the heavy travel began to
wear on me after several years, so I decided to make a change. I
moved out to SF, I work in sales for a big IT company. Life is
Most of what I have done has been motivated by community and
people. I spend a lot of time interacting with people, and like it

Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Picking up new hobbies for 3 months and then moving on to the next,
public speaking, remembering people's names, self-deprecation,
adapting, doing backflips after drinking, accents (try me)

Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I read a lot and use my commute to listen to books on tape. Sci Fi
is my guilty pleasure genre (Orson Scott Card, Frank Herbert, Kurt
Vonnegut are some favorites). Also love anything by Christopher
Moore, Neil Gaiman, or Terry Pratchett.
I read a lot of self development/inspirational books. Leaving
Microsoft to Change the World is a favorite.
I like seeing movies at the Kabuki theater on Post and Fillmore.
They serve drinks there.
Live music is the goodness. I try to see at least one show a month.
Rock, Indy, Folksy, EDM, Country - it's all good. If I can dance to
it, I'm in; gotta love that eargasmic serotonin release. Examples:
Cut Copy, Passion Pit, Geographer, Imagine Dragons, M83, St. Lucia,
Foster the People, Vampire Weekend, Walk the Moon, Bob Dylan, Tom
Petty, Muse. The White Panda makes amazing mashups.
I eat out a lot just because there is always something new to try
somewhere. I will eat anything and like it. Except black licorice.
Fuck that stuff.

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.

How to keep growing and improving intellectually, emotionally,
physically and financially. What I'll be doing next weekend. The
great stories that came out of last weekend. My next trip. The
amazing people in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Out somewhere in the City, or in whatever other city I've decided
will host me that weekend. Chances are abnormally high that I'll be
in a costume...
