My self-summary
I'm a curious guy. My curiosity drives a lot of what I do and who I am. I love to travel and so far have been to fifteen countries outside of the U.S. and four of them in the last year. And I plan to visit Turkey later this year along with Munich for Oktoberfest!

Other than that I love movies, eating well and learning anything I can.
What I’m doing with my life
Really my goal is to change the world. And while every action changes the world a bit my aim is a little higher. I want to affect the most positive change on the world as is possible.

Currently I'm trying to achieve that goal as a Product Manager at a big Silicon Valley tech company. I tried my hand at the startup world (twice actually), but now think perhaps a big company will make my work have more impact. We shall see, I just started in July '13.

So that's a big piece of what I'm doing, while trying to adjust my to whole life changing at once last year (sold my house, sold my company, ended a 9 year relationship, moved cities and started working for a giant company).

Lastly, I love movies and plan soon on buying a fancy DSLR and trying my hand at making some shorts.
I’m really good at
Being creative on the fly and seeing parallels between very diverse subjects (i.e. I'm great at analogies).

Navigating large crowds of people.

Making Italian food (eggplant parmesan is my specialty). I'm not a bad cook in general, although i do it a lot less these days due to free work food. Please give me a reason to cook and for more than one!
The first things people usually notice about me
My salt and pepper hair. And currently my dark rimmed glasses (although a few days a week I wear contacts).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books. Hmm... Crime and Punishment is my all time favorite. But honestly I don't read a ton of fiction, mostly non-fiction, something I ought to change. I also loved A Wrinkle in Time when I was little kid, re-read last year, still, totally, awesome!

Favorite movies? Um, way too many to list. And really it's more like several per category. Bad movie that I'm super nostalgic about and still love, Hudson Hawk (you may need to look it up). Art house movie that actually blew my mind, The Seventh Seal, total classic chess with death and what not. Feel good drama, I mean probably Shawshank, I mean come on, if you don't love that movie, put two fingers to your neck. Is there a pulse? Didn't think so, you're probably dead and even then, seriously, it's a great movie! I could go on and on, but why don't you message me for more thoughts on movies!

Now onto shows. TV shows or concerts? Let's go with TV. My 3 favorite shows of all time are probably, The Wire, Breaking Bad and Avatar the Last Air Bender. Yeah that's right a cartoon made the list. Also I mean there's so much great TV out there I could list at least 50 shows I think are amazing.

I like music. It's like good and stuff. Heh. No but seriously folks, I'm not a crazy concert going fool or anything, but I've been to some good shows and I have the requisite iPod filled to the brim with MP3s. On there you can find obscure indie stuff in spades, but also Justin Timberlake, The Beatles, Thelonious Monk and Beethoven's 9th. One of my favorite concerts of all time was actually a band I'm only so-so on. It was a Devotchka show at The Independent. They did three encores and literally ran out of (their) songs to sing. The frontman poured wine on himself on stage and then passed the bottle around to the crowd. Good times! I've also seen Pinback more than any other band.

On the food front, I'm a foodie. But as for food styles I tend to love Italian (most regions) and sushi the most. But one of my favorite meals ever was an 8 course tasting menu at the now closed 2 star Michelin restaurant called Cyrus. It also came with wine pairings, bam! So yeah, that's just the tip of the iceberg for me and food. I love it.
The six things I could never do without

Constant learning
*A good night's sleep
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything I see around me? I'm not joking, I tend to walk down the street looking up (hence my current username, which I admit is a little weak). When I was kid my mom used to take me for walks in the park with the dog, but I was the one that held up the walk the most, not the dog.

Also, what's next in my life? I think about that a lot. A goal of changing the world is quite nebulous and so sometimes a little focus is in order. Thinking about focusing a little more is something I do.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out grabbing a drink with friends or with someone from OKC. Sometimes just regenerating from a tough week.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
(Finally found something cutesy and appropriate for this, by and large, illogical section)

The sound of an airplane toilet flushing startles the hell out of me every time, so I quickly plug my ears right after I press the flush button!

You're a curious, thick skinned and have an optimistic attitude about the world.
