Local who made his way back after moving around the country for education and work. I'm loving the sunshine, awesome food/music scene and easy access to SF, Tahoe and the Sierra Nevadas. I'm always on the search for the perfect cup of coffee or glass of wine.
I am a scientist, freelance consultant and entrepreneur. During the week I work on a PhD over at Berkeley (Bioengineering with minor/concentration in business), advise area biotech startups, and am building a small company of my own (more to come soon...).
On the weekends I hunt out live music, the perfect dish or a mountain to climb. I'm an ambivert (introspective extrovert), so a weekend also isn't complete without a bit of family and friend time.
Sometimes my friends refer to me as Encyclopedia Patricka (hint, hint... my name is Patrick).
Games: Cards Against Humanity
Music: Jesse Cooke, Priyo, Marcio Faraco, Classical, EDM, etc.
Reading: Chaucer, Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, NY Times, News of the Weird :)
I've got a great butt.
One of these two things is true.
It also doesn't hurt if your smart, driven, witty/playful, warm, inquisitive
and can deliver a healthy dose of sass.
If you love getting outdoors (hiking, skiing, scuba diving, rock climbing, kayaking, camping), exploring new places, trying new foods and coffee/wine... major bonus points.
Don't be shy. I don't bite on the first date.
