Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm in a relationship. We've been together for several years. From
Austin, to LA, then SF, back to LA and the back to SF again! I
think NY was in there for a moment but that might have been a
I also like meeting new people.
That's what this is all about right?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Exploring. Learning. Building.
This might be one of those "there are three options and you can
pick on two" situations. For the last ~5 years I was really focused
on Learning and Building. More recently moved the slider from
Building to Exploring -- my Passport has had more action in the
last two years than the previous decade.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm really good at falling down and then laughing about it. I'm
also really good at getting back up and trying again. That's my
secret to everything: Fall down. Laugh. Try again. Repeat. Applies
to pretty much everything from physical activies to friendship and
The first things people usually notice about me

When I had long hair; when I have brightly colored hair; when I had
glasses or now that I don't. People ask where I'm from when they
can't place my accent -- I grew up in Austin, go figure. If we
meet, tell me what you first noticed and I'll report back here.

Growing up in Austin, I wanted to be a music snob. I'd go to
Waterloo records trying to find albums they didn't have in stock so
they would have to special order them for me. I thought that was
cool. I was 19.
Probably what I miss most about Austin is being able to wander from
venue to venue until I found a band that I liked.
Music: (Spotify) Pink Martini, M83, Xx, Phantogram, Lana Del Rey,
Oh Land, Beats Antique, Deadmaus5, Snoop, Blackalicious, Jurassic
5, Coup, People Under the Stairs, RJD2, Bonobo, ...
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Air, Water, Protein, Fat, Coffee and Sunlight
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
People: How and why do they/we work?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
... everything changes and Friday's no exception. What now? There's
no set routine, generally something like: Events, Dinners, Drinks,
Dates, Friends and occasionally Working.
Events? E.x. Alton Brown at the GG Theater; Cirque; Snap Judgment
Live; Speakeasy SF; Sleep No More (NY). Plus the occasional
overnight adventure race -- weirdos running around SF and Marin
carrying heavy things, learning to work as a team and playing the
in ocean at all hours of the night.
Unless it's winter and there's snow in Tahoe. If there is snow in
Tahoe then I'm probably on my way to Tahoe. I grew up in Austin
Texas where is almost never snowed, so I'm pretty excited about
easy recreational access to snow! Recently Tahoe has been too much
like Austin in not much snow department.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I greatly prefer baths to showers. It's likely that I wrote some or
all of this profile from the tub.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
Adventures! Intrigue! Mystery! Well, more of the first two and less
of the last one. Here's the deal: I/we have been in SF for a touch
over eight years. Almost everyone I know is someone I worked with.
I want to branch out, meet new people, do things new and old.
Update: We have now a 16 week old puppy. I'm all about puppy/dog
