What I’m doing with my life
I'm a software developer for a big software/hardware company in the Silicon Valley, on a product that hopefully a lot of people are using.

When I'm not working, I try to play golf a few times a week, go out to eat and drink with friends, hang out with family. I have recently picked up rock climbing and poker, so those two hobbies are taking up some of my time these days.

However, when I’m not in the mood to be out and about, you can catch me at home, playing Rock Band, watching TV (why do I have to watch the Food Network when I’m hungry? Why do I do this to myself?), reading, wasting time on reddit or twoplustwo, or sleeping. I’m also learning to cook which I really enjoy.
I’m really good at
There are a few things I like to think I have some talent with:
- Soccer, I'm a pretty good goalie.
- Golf, about a 5-7 handicap.
- Poker
- Programming, it's how I make my living.
- Rock Band and Guitar Hero (I wish this didn't sound as lame as it does)
- Being a big brother (the by birth kind, not the volunteer kind)
The first things people usually notice about me
I'd like to think my eyes are pretty awesome, but, it depends on what I'm doing. Maybe I'll be doing something incredibly eye-catching like juggling or tripping over a curb and you'll notice that.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
- Anything by Nick Hornby (Fever Pitch, High Fidelity, How To Be Good, 'Juliet, Naked’.) One of my favorite authors.
- Books that can explain a lot about society, or topics I'm interested in (Freakonomics, Super Freakonomics, Soccernomics, Blink, The Search for the Perfect Golf Club)
- Suspense Novels by authors like Dean Koontz and Stephen King. I loved the Odd Thomas series.
- Young Adult fiction - Harry Potter, Hunger Games, the whole Ender’s Game series.

Movies:
- I like a lot of comedies, some favorites are: Happy Gilmore, Caddyshack, Office Space, I Love You Man, 40 Year Old Virgin, The Hangover, Vegas Vacation, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, Airplane.
- I'm a sucker for old Disney musicals and new Pixar movies (Up, Toy Story, Mulan, Aladdin, Lion King, Tangled, Hercules).
- I am pretty deprived when it comes to classic movies, but a few I have seen I really liked (Shawshank Redemption, Full Metal Jacket, Original Star Wars Trilogy, Good Will Hunting).

TV:
- How I Met Your Mother, Simpsons, Family Guy, Futurama, White Collar, Psych, Glee, The League, Workaholics, Diners Drive-ins and Dives, Broad City, Key and Peele, Louie, sports (soccer, golf, football, hockey, basketball, some baseball - but I prefer going to games). The shows I've binge watched on Netflix lately are House of Cards, New Girl, and Bob's Burgers.

Music:
- Classic Rock (The Who, Aerosmith, Kansas, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Rolling Stones).
- Alternative (Green Day, Third Eye Blind, My Chemical Romance, Incubus, Wolfmother)
- Showtunes (Disney Musicals (Lion King, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Mulan, Hercules), Rent, Wicked, Les Miz, The Producers, Kiss Me Kate, Camelot, Music Man, Into The Woods, The Last 5 Years, Next to Normal, etc.)
The six things I could never do without
1) My little brother and sister
2) My laptop or phone
3) Dogs in general
4) A car or bike
5) My golf clubs
6) Household comforts (shower, bed, etc.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Hm, there are a few fun facts about me:
- I was born 3 months premature (1 lb, 15 ozs).
- My first paying job was to juggle, do magic, and ride a unicycle at kid's parties
