My self-summary
I grew up with warm beaches and soul food, tempered myself with seven snowy winters, then moved to San Francisco, where the weather never changes. I miss the warm summers, but not the snowy winters.

I'm a sucker for new things. I cook and bake, bike play ultimate, and love coffeeshops.

I'm well-traveled, and like to think of myself as well-rounded. I like being part of a good story.
What I’m doing with my life
Developing an appreciation for how cities (and especially San Francisco) become better for the people in them. Urbanism, especially as it relates to transit, bicycles, and parklets is really interesting. Right now I'm really into street design, especially since there are so many big street changes coming to the city soon.

During the week, I'm a programmer at a smallish SF tech company that has nothing to do with social networks or games, but that does have a couple of ads in SFO. (Edit: Now it's a smallish company owned by a huge one.) Before I became a silicon valley stereotype, I spent 7ish years in bioinformatics, so I have a lot of now-irrelevant knowledge about malaria and insect genomes.

Speaking of airports, I'm in the process of trying a new kind of traveling. Rather than a big (week-to-month) trip once a year, I'm planning several weekend trips to closer places... best coast first to see how it goes, but I want to have some adventures that are further away than I can get on my bike.

Eating my way across the city.

Living forever.
I’m really good at
Making decisions, not getting lost, bike commuting.

Technology in general.

Mille Bornes.

Coming in not-last-place.

Like many INTJs, I prize competence; "specialization is for insects." I enjoy being good at things and also learning new things to be good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
People tell me I'm tall, although I've seen tall people, and I'm not them.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My bed is held up by bookshelves. I read streetsblog almost every day. For fiction, I mostly read for escapism, and I tend to stick with authors I like. Some recent favorites: Charles Stross, Iain (M.) Banks, Walter Jon Williams.

I finally bought a new cartridge/needle for a record player I had lying around, and now I'm keeping an eye out for contemporary vinyl... The collection's up to six or seven now; the most recent addition was the new Mumford and Sons.

Indian (well, Nepalese), and soul food (collards, okra, ribs) are my comfort cuisines. I will go out of my way for good Thai or a tasty banh mi. My tolerance for spicy food is far higher than it needs to be, but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The worst thing I ever ate was boiled prickly-pear cactus, which I actually couldn't force myself to chew long enough to swallow. It was like slimy milkweed-flavored green beans.
The six things I could never do without
Sight, sunlight (without which I am grumpy), new experiences (I'm averse to death, so no bungie jumping, but I am a neophile), music, people. I used to be able to do without the Internet, until I started using it to remember things.

How many was that?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Street design, my next meal, optimizing my life through careful selection of phone apps, how to both travel and work, how to have the most fun each day.
On a typical Friday night I am
Likely asleep so I can get an early start on Saturday. I'm apparently a morning person, and I like to go get scones and a coffee before the brunch crowd wakes up.

(Don't worry, I can be talked into staying up late for a good cause.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I get judged a lot for watching Nic Cage movies.

I don't get annoyed at red lights or slow drivers, but I will totally make the hang-up-your-phone hand gesture at people in cars when I biking around.
