My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Electrical Engineer, Data Scientist, Yoga Instructor (in training).

New to SF (Noe Valley), looking for friends, dates, and collaborators; all three in the same person would be ideal!
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just moved up to SF after living in the South Bay for four years, primarily to be closer to friends, and to make meeting new friends easier!

Came out to California from the northeast for a PhD at Stanford GSB, left the program with a masters, and now I'm working as an analyst at a voip company, but that's just my day job; my passions lie elsewhere.

My dream is to find a way to combine my love of technology with my passion for yoga, meditation and other spiritual things in a way that both helps others and provides a steady income.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Empathizing.

Going with the flow.

Yoga. Currently in instructor training under Janet Stone.

Video Games

Trivia, I make a great bar trivia teammate, although I prefer Jeopardy.

Figuring things out based on feedback, which in practice translates into an eclectic set of talents and skills.

Movies: Brick, The Dark Knight, The Big Lebowski, Dr. Strangelove, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Primer, Ghostbusters, Goodfellas, In the Loop, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. Pretty much all of the Marvel Studio films, especially Guardians of the Galaxy.

Music: Alt-J, New Pornographers, Superchunk, Neko Case, Arcade Fire, Fiest, Fleet Foxes, Fountains Of Wayne, Radiohead, Spoon, Pavement, Ted Leo, Guided by Voices, Aimee Mann, Regina Spektor, Fiona Apple
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Caffeine, and other drugs
Reading
Soylent
Stimulating Conversation
Yoga
Pop culture.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The future, both on a societal level and personal, and how to improve the probability of positive outcomes for both.

How to use technology to spread enlightenment, expand consciousness, etc; instead of just producing more passive consumers.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I stay in reading or watching stuff more than I would like to admit, but I also do the usual bar, club, concert, house party, etc when it comes up.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I have an irrational fear of jellyfish. Not in the abstract, just in the specific context of seeing them in the ocean when I am swimming, in which they send me running to the beach.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to have an engaging, potentially wildly tangential conversation over coffee about politics, technology, linguistics, drugs, pop culture etc.

Or if you want a TV/movie watching buddy- I have a ton of content on my media server, and love showing it off.

Or an exercise/activity partner, always looking for a reason to explore a new hiking trail, yoga studio, etc.
