Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Perpetual seeker. Penetrates my love of music and experience in
general. I think years of growing up perusing record stores has
rubbed off on other aspects of my life. Coming off a camping trip
in Zion and embarking on scuba adventure in Mexico. Love traveling
for pleasure, but mostly I'm somewhat of a homebody. Love my life
in the Arts District. Weekends bring me outdoors: cycling, swimming
and running are routine at this point. Evenings I'm often enjoying
an IPA with a friend.
Music is still my primary hobby. I put down the upright bass years
ago but it sits in the corner staring at me everyday. Dropped a
fortune at Amoeba as a kid, now trumped by a $10 per month
subscription to Spotify, a godsend to my bank account. Seriously,
their archive is magnificent. Sure, my brother-in-law works for
Spotify, but that was just dumb luck.
Started racing triathlons 8 years ago and it's become the "health"
part of my life. Completed my second Ironman last August which was
a pretty amazing experience. But I'm far from the typical
triathlete. I don't count calories or have an IM tattoo. Triathlon
is simply a vehicle to get outdoors, in the ocean, and on the road
to offset an otherwise care free diet.
I am very happy with my career. I get to problem solve for a
living. Work with great and inspiring people.
If you are into music, design, fitness and urban living then that's
a good foundation for me. The rest is up to chemistry.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Looking for a number 6
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Watching a movie at home. Usually go cycling early on Sat mornings.
Sat nights are out on the town for me.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
