My self-summary
I am thriving at life. I love my work, have a great community of friends, am deeply involved in the arts, am healthy and fit, live in the world's best city... all cylinders of my soul and being are firing in synch.

I'm a man who appreciates all of the joys of life in moments grand and mundane. I'm an improv actor, long-distance runner, believe taking risks is essential to living life fully, follow my curiosity, love to laugh, tell stories, create new things, go on adventures, hiking, camping, sailing, and generally all things outdoors (nature is my temple).
What I’m doing with my life
Tech entrepreneur who runs a pioneering artificial intelligence company in the space industry. I get to point the satellites in space at all the corners of Earth to track global deforestation, climate change, poverty, economic growth, geopolitical and national security issues. Basically, I'm a very high-tech investigative journalist. And sometimes I get to work on launching new rockets into space too.
I’m really good at
Both right brain and left brain. Analytical intelligence + emotional intelligence.

Believing in you and supporting your boldest dreams.

Running uphill. On weekend mornings you'll often find me running up and down the mountains of the Marin Headlands.

In August, I ran the Machu Picchu marathon, rated the world's most difficult marathon. It was an epic experience, climbing 10,000-ft elevation and descending 12,000-ft over a 26-mile course along the edge of steep cliffs in the Andes mountains.

I love setting big hairy audacious goals, and then working my butt off to achieve them.
The first things people usually notice about me
My passion, optimism and groundedness.

On a typical Friday night I am
Hanging out with friends and/or doing something related to improv acting, either performing or seeing a show.

I'm also really into live music, even occasionally producing a show here and there.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love life in the City, but my dream is to one day buy and live on a large farm on the California coast overlooking the ocean, somewhere near Big Sur.
You should message me if
You are an extraordinary woman who can inspire me!

My ideal relationship is one where we are fully committed to each other's personal growth and evolution; where we encourage and support each other to achieve our biggest, craziest, most audacious goals; where we dream up new visions together of things we then go out and co-create; and where every single day we are inspiring each other to reach a little farther, stand a little taller, confront our challenges a little more courageously, and love a little more freely.
