New to the yay area and enjoying exploring this overly pleasant
tapestry of landscapes from the top of Tam to the post-industrial
decay of West Oakland. My favorite place on the planet is Iceland
in the Summer and Virgin Gorda in the winter. I'm aspiring to a
bi-coastal existence. I spent my 20s creating television shows and

define my life by the relationships I create with others, not by
what I do during the day for $. I'd like to pick up a degree/PhD
from the MIT Media Lab before my 30s have come and gone. Riding my
bicycle to new places and taking pictures is my idea of a nice
little Saturday afternoon. Hoping to meet some new friends and
hopefully the right woman to grow, learn, and love together.

The Wire & 6 Feet Under are the two greatest shows in
