I like to build things and climb rocks both small and big.
I'm consciously not a renaissance person. I'd rather spend my time obsessing over things I've decided are important (see above) than sampling novel experiences. I try to surround myself with like-minded people.
Bay Area raised* and educated for whatever that's worth. I've travelled enough to feel like I've left and come back though.
* I really wanted to say 'born and bred', but that's technically not true.
What I’m doing with my life
Programming at a start up down in Redwood City and driving my 20 year old minivan way too far every weekend to go play in the outdoors.
I’m really good at
Yoyos, really, although I've been out of it for a while.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm terrible at standing still and telling my left from my right.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Breakfast. Thomas Pynchon, Charlie Parr. Robert Glasper.
But also bad punk from the 90s.
And also other stuff, probably.
Seriously though I read a decent amount, mostly fiction. It would be cool if you did too.
The six things I could never do without
Rock shoes, books, passport, coffee, sleeping bag, enough jackets to make a pillow.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Computers, travel plans, and not having enough time to do all the things I want to do.
Quitting my job (again) and living out of my car (again) vs. career growth and general responsibility. It's a tough one.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually going to bed early so I can get up early.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I really do have most of my shit together but will forever pretend that I don't.
That said, this one time I jumped off the roof of a parked car, broke both my feet, and refused to admit that anything was wrong with me. I hobbled around on an undersized pair of borrowed crutches for two weeks before finally relenting and seeing a doctor. He told me I was an idiot, and was probably right.
You should message me if
...it seems like a good idea.
