Which do you prioritize: happiness or meaning? I know we all want
both, but if you had to choose...what would it be?
What I’m doing with my life
My social life and work life together keep me super busy, but
that's how I like it. I have tons of friends here, which is
especially awesome after spending a few years on the East coast. As
for my day job, I work at a consulting firm on healthcare and high
tech issues, so yeah, basically saving the world one PowerPoint
slide at a time.
I’m really good at
Impersonating washed-up child actors, evading arrest in Bolivia,
getting arrested in Tijuana, finding my way into Hindu weddings at
the last minute. Yes, these are all true stories. Ask me.
The first things people usually notice about me
Fro, goofy laugh, stunning wit. But mostly just the fro.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books - Unbearable Lightness of Being, The Alchemist, Hard Boiled
Wonderland and the End of the World
Movies - JCVD, Adaptation, Pulp Fiction, Rashomon
The six things I could never do without
1) Telling amazing stories, both real and imaginary
2) Getting drenched in my own sweat and knowing I earned it
3) Being a kid at heart
4) Savoring the 'here and now'
5) Giving the perfect toast, for this moment and these people
6) Finding myself in serendipitous encounters you'd never read
about in Lonely Planet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What would happen if I got sent back in time, to like the 15th
century. How would I teach the people about modern science? Hand
hygiene? How could I convince them that the world is round? That
vegetables are good for you? I'm not kidding.
On a typical Friday night I am
Happy hour, house party, game night, bhangra night, silly hat
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Deep down I'm a sensitive guy.
You should message me if
You'd be well prepared to time-travel with me back to the 15th
Travel-partners must have a sense of adventure, MacGyver-like
resourcefulness, and knowledge of at least 1-2 bits of modern
science that would convince the local serfdom you possess magic
