I like meeting new people, through interacting with other people we bring out the best in ourselves, and discover new interests and hobbies. While at the same time I can be pretty bad at the ice-breaking small talk, and this aloofness can be mistaken for being dull or stuck-up/
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
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

Currently I am very interested in virtual reality, and looking to either put together or join a VR development company of some sort.

Getting a bit tired of the south bay suburbs, looking to move up to SF proper (or Oakland) next summer.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.

Going with the flow.

Yoga. Going to a teacher training retreat down at Esalen in February!

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.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Caffeine, and other drugs
Stimulating Conversation
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.
