I'm an introvert who often gets mistaken for an extrovert.
I like to call myself a generalist, somebody whose interests and aptitudes span multiple disciplines.
I am passionate about ideas, and drawing connections between those ideas with other people.
I think people's bookshelves are a proxy for their identity.
I'm a geek at heart, as the sci-fi collection I hide in my bedroom will attest.
I play volleyball and ultimate frisbee and have a season pass at Squaw after rediscovering skiing a few winters ago. I also got into biking (both road and mountain) over the past few years.
I have found that homemade cookies are appropriate for any audience and any occasion, from toddlers to wine tastings.
I enjoy playing card games and board games, but mostly use them as an excuse to trash talk.
I bike to work most days.
I have sky dived, bungee jumped, scuba dived, ridden a motorcycle, lived in Switzerland and Manhattan, eaten at the French Laundry and Alinea, hiked Half Dome, served coffee at Burning Man, climbed the Sydney Harbor Bridge, officiated at my sister's wedding, sung with the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, bicycled from Mountain View to Santa Barbara, traveled for three weeks in India, skied in Japan, mountain biked from Durango, CO to Moab, UT, and am looking for more experiences.
