I love to have fun, and sometimes have a hard time keeping a
straight face. Other times, I am the task master. I like to think I
am eclectic, and fairly well read. Every time I peruse the New York
Times, and encounter something I did not know about, I destroy that
illusion. Truth be told I am somewhat a bit of a nerd. Fashion
sense occasionally eludes me, and I love martial arts, so much so,
I am lucky enough to be able to teach kids. It's something that
allows me to forget about time, and just be in the moment. I am not
just an ordinary nerd, I am quite the nerd, and a nerd with social
skills. I know to walk on the outside closest to the cars when you
walk with a woman, and open a door. I believe that that being smart
doesn't mean socially inept. I enjoy knowing new things, and love
to learn. I adore my nieces, and nephews, and by any measure am
both lucky, and privileged. Technology is a great love of mine, as
it can be very useful. I live on the internet, and am enamored with
technology start-ups. I enjoy conversation, and love to hear
different points of view. I think kindness is under-rated, but it
should not be mistaken for weakness. I love the idea of the Golden
Rule, and while I can't prove it I try to live my life by the idea.
I say all things in time. I am at the point now where life has
stopped giving me things, and beginning to take them away. It
requires effort for me to accept this gracefully, but slowly it's
What I’m doing with my life
I work with people that I love, and look forward to going to work
everyday. We run our own company. I love to play, and spend a lot
of time running, or playing with my nephews and nieces. Legos are a
particular weakness. I enjoy teaching, and speaking as well. I try
to spend time volunteering, and giving back when I can. Balance is
important in life. I am working on creating the me that I want to
be in 20 years. Let's just say its a pretty detailed plan.
I’m really good at
Many things, but they are outnumbered by the things I don't excel
at. I am a mean baker. Through the benefits of shock therapy, I am
a so so electrician. I also excel at creating names for couples.
who do you think came up with Bennifer? I can make ice cream that
will make you cry, and my naan recipe is just that good.
The first things people usually notice about me
The long hair which I cut for a good reason. For a while there Mr.
Clean had ethnic competition. I usually say charisma, and spelling
ability, but people are beginning to catch on to the fact my phone
has a spell checker.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Japanese, Thai, and Indian cuisines are high on the list. When it
comes to books let's just say I have a problem. Music is part of
life. TV not as much, but I do have moments of weakness.
The six things I could never do without
My nieces and nephews
Going to public places to people watch
Making fun of people in public places
I spend a lot of time thinking about

On a typical Friday night I am
At a technology event or with friends begging them to let go home
after midnight, as I turn into a pumpkin then. More often than not
in some hole in the wall joint The last place I was at had about a
dozen stuffed animal heads. I am still trying to figure out who
they hired as a decorator.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have an inordinate fondness for giraffes, and a weakness for

bubbles. Like to walk in the rain. Love ice cream. are fond of
brown men. Know how give a back rub that will make a grown man cry.
Don't think it's odd that a grown man makes airplane noises. Love
giraffes. Think that Bob Marley died way too young. Can talk about
Nietzsche, physics, history and legos in one sentence.
