I'm currently working at Google 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
The two primary hobbies are rock climbing and competitive
skydiving. I'm about as close to being a professional skydiver as
possible while still maintaining a full time job. I was on a pickup
team that recently went to the indoor skydiving national
championships and won silver in the professional division, just
behind the current world champions. Video:
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 2013 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 a pilot, and lately I've been flying quite a bit, and I'm
in the process of buying a plane. 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! ;)
