I've lived in the Seattle area since I moved up here to go school
at the University of Washington. Graduated with a degree in visual
arts and then spent some time looking for a job. I found one in
Redmond and have been with the company ever since.
I now spend most of my free time running or riding my bike on the
Burke-Gilman trail and the surrounding Seattle area.
What I’m doing with my life
Running has become a significant part of my life since I took on the sport a few years ago, so I am always trying to improve in this hobby of mine. I am by no means a great runner, pretty slow actually, but I can run for hours. It'd be great to meet someone who enjoys running too- whether you're new or been doing it for years.
Besides running, I try to explore some parts of the Seattle area I haven't been to - be it just sight seeing, grabbing a drink at a bar or to try some food.
I’m really good at
Remembering the most random and trivial things. I won't remember
why I know or where I learned of a certain knowledge, but it is in
my head (I blame the internet).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm a great listener. I'm on the shy side so I'm usually quiet at
first letting other people do the talking, but once I have a
connection with someone I can hold my own.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Movies - I've been enjoying most of the Pixar movies, Up, Wall-E,
etc. I have also been a Kevin Smith's Red Banks, NJ fan since my
friend introduced me to his films in high school. Some of these
movies are Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Clerks 2... sure, it has
a lot of toilet humor, but it makes me laugh. Beyond these listed,
I enjoy anything that can make me laugh - comedy, really bad movies
or Nic Cage hair-dos.
Music - I enjoy most top 40 hits and songs that are played on the
dance floors. Even if it is a song with weak lyrics, but if it
makes me tap my feet or bop my head, I enjoy it. For a more
specific band - No Doubt. I went to their concert nearly 10 years
ago and have loved their music ever since. It is a little
embarrassing, but I can sing a long to just about every No Doubt
The six things I could never do without
Umm, let's see...
1- My running shoes.
2- A watch - I like to know what time it is all the time.
3- Good friends - I don't like to be lonely.
4- My phone - it has all my friend's info- but I'm not addicted to checking it
5- Head phones - I use it to listen to music to block noisy coworkers and make the day go by faster.
6- Carbs - rice, pasta, I need it.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Currently there are two main things that I spend a lot thinking
about; running and a career.
Running - this is my main hobby, so I am consistently thinking
about my run workouts. When and where to run and how far I am going
to run. Wondering if this meal is too big for my run later
Career - I have a job with a good company and good co-workers, but
I feel that I could be useful somewhere else. I've looked at other
companies and even considered going back to school.
On a typical Friday night I am
I switch from either watching a movie at home while recovering from
one of my runs or heading out to a bar with some friends. I can do
the club scene from time to time, but prefer a low key place where
I can enjoy the people I'm with.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
In middle school, I broke into a friend's house to play video
