Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in Florida and spent most of my life there. After grad
school I moved out to the Bay Area, and I absolutely love it.
Family is very important to me, so I try to go back and visit
I like to fill my life with people and activities that I really
enjoy. This allows me to look forward to the new day.
This is a pretty good summary: http://youtu.be/KBluUZ4NnZg
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm currently working at Google as a software engineer on the
self-driving car project. I believe that this work is going to have
a large and positive impact on society. It will hopefully save many
lives, which is important to me.
The primary hobbies are rock climbing, competitive skydiving,
ultimate and flying.
As for rock climbing, it's a serious passion of mine, and try to
climb indoors at least 2-3 times per week. I've made one trip to
climb in Yosemite and I absolutely loved it. I can't wait to go
back. One of my 2014 goals is to climb one of the faces of Half
Dome (and then El Cap!). I'm currently planning a climbing trip to
the Lleida region of Spain.
Health and fitness are a big part of my life. I try to eat healthy
whenever possible, and I workout at the gym on many days when I'm
not rock climbing.
I also enjoy sports recreationally, and some recent interests are
Ultimate, surfing, and snowboarding. Bonus points if you can teach
me how to wakeboard, or are interested in learning to wakeboard.
It's something I've always wanted to try.
I just started learning to play guitar, and I'm loving it. I try to
play every day.
I'm also an instrument rated pilot, and lately I've been flying
quite a bit. I love having the freedom to just up and leave on a
whim without having to deal with the hassles of TSA or flying
commercial. Some recent destinations include Vegas, San Diego,
Santa Barbara, Santa Monica, and Portland. You pick the next one!
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Sports: softball, soccer, volleyball, ultimate, golf
Having a positive outlook
Getting along with people
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
I don't watch very much TV, but there are a few shows I try to keep
up with: Dexter (sad it's over), Game of Thrones, The Big Bang
Theory, Breaking Bad, Top Gear, House of Cards (Season 2 soon!),
Homeland, Orphan Black.
Books: Steve Jobs, The Hunger Games, 1776 by David McCullough,
Sword of Truth (series) by Terry Goodkind, Harry Potter, etc.
Thinking about starting Song of Ice and Fire.
I like almost all music, new and old, popular and otherwise. I
enjoy going to see live music, from musicals to rock concerts and
everything else. Lately I've really been into Mumford & Sons,
Imagine Dragons. Lately I've been on a country kick, and I'm really
enjoying it. Avicii is killing it right now.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Technology (Computer, Internet, etc)
Working out / Sports (I'm cheating a bit by combining these)
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
No Friday nights are really typical. Usually I'm hanging out
somewhere in PA, rock climbing at Planet Granite in Sunnyvale, or
at home playing my guitar.
