My self-summary
I've lived in San Francisco for seven years and moved here from Austin. I spent most of my childhood moving from city to city and feel fortunate to have landed in the epicenter of mimosa brunches, pet festivals, and artisan coffee.

I'm inquisitive and love late nights laughing with friends and getting to the bottom of how things work or why they sometimes don't. I'm an introvert at heart and can be drained by heavy doses of extroversion, but in general I thrive on engaging conversations and enjoy meeting new people from different social circles. Music has been a life-long passion, and I love attending shows and writing/playing songs on various stringed instruments.
What I’m doing with my life
My career is fairly important to me, and I'm adamant about working in an environment that is fun, challenging, and presents opportunities to make positive change in the world. I also make time for experiencing more of the world by traveling and love hearing about people's lives abroad and adventures in foreign countries.

When I'm not working, you can find me fiddling with an instrument, at a local dive with friends, playing pool with strangers, hiking in the north bay, or staying in with my cats and catching up on a show or movie. I've recently started to favor podcasts over reading, though I do love getting sucked into non-fiction and learning more about technology, economics, politics, and psychology.
I’m really good at
Distilling complex concepts into easily digestible nuggets of information, reading text from far away, 90s trivia, meeting people on the airplane and listening to their life story, sweeping arpeggios, starting dance parties, being punctual, and learning songs by ear.
The first things people usually notice about me
Ambiguous ethnicity and the absence of a southern accent.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Alone Together, Griftopia, Freakanomics, and the Steve Jobs biography.
