What I’m doing with my life
I'm developing my eccentricities now, while I'm young.

also:

I spent the past four years building a pretty awesome tech company in beautiful Mountain View. I was our first non-technical hire and have done sales, marketing, and ops type stuff for the past few years. Today I run my own company, I absolutely love it.

Outside of work I’m intellectually curious. I love to read and learn about the world. If I’m tired and beat I’ll watch a documentary about nature or travel. Once or twice a year you’ll catch me binge watching something, but it’s quite rare. It’s really hard for me to sit still and do nothing.

During the winters I like to hit the slopes. I’ve been a proud skier for 23 of my 26 years. It’s hard for me to articulate the joy I get when carving a steep face. If I’m ever between jobs you’ll most likely find me in Park City or Telluride.

Like almost everyone, I like to travel. I’ve spent a bunch of time in SE Asia and Central America. When traveling I love the feeling of being an outsider. I could (and have) spent days wandering around Hong Kong just taking in the sites and watching daily life.

I play sports a few days a week. I’m not a fanatic, but a little exercise helps clear my psyche.
I’m really good at
I love to ski, I've been told I'm pretty good. I think I'm pretty good at apres skiing as well -- but that part is a little hazier.

I'm good at asking questions as well. I like to learn about people and things.

A few interesting facts:
* I qualified for the nationals in ski racing without a race suit or race skis.
* I read a book a week for a year. The year after that I watched a lot of Netflix
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm taller than average with blue eyes.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My favorite movies are usually slightly quirky. I'm a fan of Wes Anderson's The Life Aquatic. I occasionally like action, frequently enjoy comedies and can be interested in the random drama.

I've watched all the Arrested Development episodes a few times. If I watch TV now, it's typically HBO, Showtime, or travel and cooking shows.

My favorite books from this past year include Richard Feynman's essays, Steve Jobs, Boomerang, Experience And Education, Thinking, Fast and Slow, and Einstein by Isaacson. My favorite novelists are Gabriel García Márquez, Chinua Achebe, and Kurt Vonnegut.

I usually listen to music here: www.hypem.com/im_asl.

Food is important. I tend to like all of it. I'm unpretentious -- I'm equally happy eating street food or hanging out in nice restaurants.
The six things I could never do without
Dirty rap songs. I’ll occasionally want to bump the Ying Yang Twins at volumes that might make you uncomfortable. You’ll need to get used to this. It’s hard to listen to the "whisper song" without turning the volume up all the way.

Great food. I love to cook; I also like to eat. It’s a match made in heaven.

Good friends. I love sitting around, sharing a nice drink and learning about people.

I'm a sucker for tradition. It's nice to be nice. I like good manners. I think writing the occasional 'thank you' note is necessary.

I really like oysters.

[insert something about well tailored suits, foreign cars, old world wine, and oxford commas]
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ze Frank True Facts.

The paradox of choice kills me whenever I'm hungry -- too many good options.
On a typical Friday night I am
Recharging or indulging.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once mistook the "drowsy eye" alcohol warning for a "winking eye" alcohol suggestion, woke up with a headache, regret, and some mandatory community service.
