I'm a dude at heart. My favorite time of year is football season
(go Ravens, sorry Niners), I appreciate a good beer with friends on
a Friday night, laugh at stupid boy humor, and believe in
old-fashioned things like the holding the door open for women. I
played lacrosse in college and - while those days are over - still
like hard workouts at the gym.
After ten years of finance (including a stint in business school),
I just moved from NYC to work in Silicon Valley. It's a bit scary
but so far so good! Any suggestions are welcome for how best to
I travel as much as I can - in the last few years, I have visited
Iceland, Mexico, and China (amazing but the food was a little
questionable). Looking for my next adventure.
I spend a lot of time thinking about the future, including which
path I'll take at the next turn in life and how to be a better man.
I'm careful about the people I let into my life, but always want to
add more. People and experiences are the true spice of life.
What I’m doing with my life
Finance for the money. Making bad decisions for fun. Finding the
right person to do it with.
I’m really good at
Being a good friend, playing with my nieces and nephews, and
appreciating the best of life - the glass is half full.
The first things people usually notice about me
My smile and laugh. I like to crack the jokes. And I've been told
my shoulders are quite broad, but only by beautiful women (kidding,
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: true to form, I like business literature. While occasionally
dry, they make me think about how to be smarter at my job. Last one
I loved was Steve Job's bio; otherwise love the classics.
Movies/TV: to name a few movies: MoneyBall, It's a Wonderful Life,
Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Tangled (yes - you read that right). TV
- The Wire, GoT, Family Guy, How I Met Your Mother... do live
sports count? In that case, football season, March Madness, or
college lacrosse playoffs.
Food: as a Baltimore man, I do love steamed crabs, Spanish food
(always looking for a new dirty hole-in-the-wall in the city),
Korean BBQ, and anything steak.
The six things I could never do without
1. Family - 5 brothers and 7 nieces/nephews make that happen.
2. Old friends
4. Good red wine by the glass
5. Sizzling steak, overpriced
6. Pretty girls (may I say that?)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Making myself a better person. Sounds absurb, but I try to spend
15-30 minutes every day contemplating how to lead a better life and
how to be a better guy.
On a typical Friday night I am
Spending time with friends, hopefully leading to rowdiness.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't like clubs - we're not 23 anymore...
