I'm a pretty laid back guy, definitely a west coast personality. I
love being active and being in the outdoors anything from days at
the beach to hiking some mountains. I'm originally from Seattle and
so I don't shy away from a little drizzle, I'm one of those people
wearing a rain jacket instead of an umbrella.
I like just about all things 90s.
IPAs and Amber Ale are my favorite types of beer.
I am big fan of outdoor concerts. My favorite venue is the gorge in
eastern Washington, you should google it if you haven't been
before. It's truly stunning.
I like the soak up the culture in San Francisco by trying out a new
bar, checking out one of the many museums or festivals, or simply
hanging out at Dolores park with a few beers.
In my downtime I enjoy netflix, books, biking and nighttime runs
through the Presidio. Whenever I get time off work I like to camp
and travel, next on the list is Joshua Tree and Eastern Europe!
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm working as a software engineer at a startup writing
iPhone applications. I feel very fortunate to be involved in such
an exciting, fast moving industry, and in one of the best cities in
the world for it. In my spare time I enjoy to go out with friends
and exploring the city. Even though I moved to SF from Seattle well
over a year ago I still find plenty of cool new places.
I’m really good at

On a typical Friday night I am
With friends at a laid-back bar, preferably laughing or debating
about something that seems really important at the time. Attending
one of the many San Francisco art or music events going on in the
city. Just hanging out with the roommates and watching a movie.
