I was born in Seattle and since most of my family is there, I've always considered it "home". I lived in San Francisco from 95-2000 and am extremely glad to be back in the Bay Area. Since I moved back for a job I spend a fair amount of my time working. When off, I'm either hanging with friends or figuring out creative ways to stay active.
I started playing guitar when I was pretty young so music has been a pretty big part of my life. Speaking of which, if you like seeing live music definitely say Hi. I love seeing bands but it's always a hundred times better with someone else.
What I’m doing with my life
These days I'm just working and playing. I have a '63 Falcon Convertible which is super fun but somewhat unreliable. It isn't my only way of getting around though. I also ride a motorcycle wherever the weather permits. This winter that hasn't been too often.
I also have a cool little dog named Thurston who loves to ride on the bike as well as cruise in the convertible. He's named after Thurston Moore from Sonic Youth.
I’m really good at

since I was a kid and can't imaging my life without that
I love cooking but usually when it's for someone else. Oh and I
have to admit that I eat pretty healthy.
I'm good at working on and riding motorcycles, however when living
in Seattle I'd always end up selling them when winter starts. These
days I drive an awesome old Ford Falcon Convertible which is
actually more fun than a bike. If only it could split lanes..
Let's see.... I'm pretty good at staying busy. I love hiking,
camping and anything else that gets me out of the city.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm not sure if this would be the first thing that people notice,
but a common observation is that I look younger than I am. I'm
chalking this up to the fact that I don't smoke cigarettes though.
At my last HS reunion everyone who was still a smoker looked way

The constant and ever expanding growth of my intellect and purpose
on the planet
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Returning to Europe. Nothing puts American life into better
perspective than a few months in another country.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends or hanging at home. I don't watch much tv these
days, opting instead for Netflix or music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I wrote a song with my uncle when I was 10 called "Feet-Feeties
You should message me if
If you're at all interested, definitely say Hi. I rarely initiate
first contact on this site. At the same time, I try to always write
