I grew up in the Bay Area (Northern California) and moved to NYC
three years ago for school. I'm still a die hard fan of the NorCal
sports teams: SF Giants, 49ers and San Jose Sharks.
I didn't get much time to explore the city in my first few years
here. Now that I have more spare time, I'm hoping to spend it
getting to know NYC -- especially the food!
What I’m doing with my life
Treating the under-served... When I have free time, I like to play
hockey, snowboard, ride my road bike, go bowling, watch movies and
musicals, try new restaurants, explore the city (finally...), hit
up a happy hour with friends or just kick back at home and watch
I’m really good at
Fixing things. Smiles and otherwise.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I used to read philosophy books but am trying to branch
out... the Hunger Games trilogy most recently, but I'm currently
reading The Origins of Virtue at the recommendation of a
Movies: Way too many to name them all... Top Gun, Remember the
Titans, Runaway Jury, Poolhall Junkies, Brotherhood of the Wolf,
The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Rock, Ocean's Eleven, Pirates Of
The Carribean trilogy, Fight Club, Life Is Beautiful, The Shawshank
Redemption, Rounders, How To Train Your Dragon, The Town, The Harry
Potter series, Dark Knight, Iron Man I and II, just about every
Disney and Pixar movie... the list can go on.
Music: I listen to just about everything (including country), but a
few artists/groups deserve special recognition: The Beatles, Simon
and Garfunkel, Elton John, Matchbox 20, Linkin Park, Jay Z, Neil
Diamond, Billy Joel, Coldplay and Rascal Flatts.
Food: I'll try just about anything, but I love sushi (probably eat
it at least once a week), thai, vietnamese, mexican, italian and a
good steak or burger.
The six things I could never do without
There are, of course, the obvious answers... family, friends, food,
shelter, etc., but I'm going to go with the 6 things I need to
function and keep sane:
3) My iPhone
4) Ice Hockey
5) Sushi (seriously.)
6) My computer (keeping in touch with friends in California and
catching up on tv shows at the end of a long day)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Why are so many people who have the potential to be extraordinary
so content with being completely ordinary? What am I going to do to
keep from becoming ordinary?
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually out with my friends... either out at a bar, watching a
movie, playing board games or shooting some pool... I don't care as
much what I'm doing as much as who I'm with. When I'm feeling a bit
more lazy, I like taking an early shower and just watching a movie
in the comforts of home.
