I grew up in the south bay, and moved east post-grad. After a few
years away on that other coast, I made the transition back and
couldn't be happier. I love the area and location... close to SF,
Carmel, Yosemite, Big Sur, Shasta, Pt. Reyes, etc. I'm outgoing,
ambitious, driven and playful, with a pretty irreverent sense of
humor (think witty sarcasm/banter meets cards against
Sunshine, the outdoors, gym, live music, wine and a large circle of
awesome family and friends are my go to outlets. I get out every
weekend and head out either to the coast (kayaking/scuba diving) or
up into the mountains (hiking/skiing).
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Working, exploring, building and enjoying life. Being a gym rat as
of late... The work-life balance.
I keep my hands in quite a few pies... PhD work at Berkeley,
working to take a couple of therapies to market, consulting for

probably forget it).

Reading: I'm a news/politics/economics junkie --> NY Times, WSJ,
BBC, Economist, The Atlantic, etc
Music: I've got pretty eclectic tastes. Right now I'm on a Jesse
Cooke, Gotan Project, Gregory Alan Isakov and London Grammar

Food: Anything fresh (veggies and meat); especially fresh seafood.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Family and Friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Friends, family, career, life...
Where I'm going to find some sunshine this weekend? Where to travel
to next? This year Kauai and Tanzania are on the list. After that
I'm not too sure... maybe Burma, Iceland, Palau, New Zealand or
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
friends, family, traveling, gym, relaxing... it's always different.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'm the Connect Four Grand Champion. I played against myself and
won... two years in row.
Despite what the personality tab would have you believe, I'm a big
softie... especially with people I care about.

If you love getting outdoors (hiking, skiing, scuba diving,
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.
