I'm just a laidback guy trying to figure life out, one day at a
What I’m doing with my life
I'm a UX Designer working at a software company in the east bay. This is just a fancy way of saying I make stuff "user friendly". So basically my job is to find out what people like and/or what people hate.
Other than work, I'm trying my best to get in better shape and especially travel more. I have a love/hate relationship with running and obstacle course races
I’m really good at
-Keeping a conversation going (awkward silence sucks)
-Finding the funny side of things, with occasionally putting my
foot in my mouth as an added side benefit to this.
-Last minute spontaneous trips
-Finding great places to eat
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Music: Everything. Hip hop/R&B (especially old school), deep house, soulful house, classical, alternative, rock, blues, jazz, japanese, hawaiian, surf rock, all kinds of electronic music.
Food: I'm a sucker for good food and especially good cocktails.
The six things I could never do without
Let's just assume that everyone can't go without the following:
Good food, good conversations, good music, good times, water, food, friends, etc. etc.
So in addition to that:
-A good sense of humor/wit/sarcasm
-Perspective and life changing moments
-Sports (Warriors, Giants, Sharks, Niners).
-Doing something active (random sports [rock climbing, racquetball, bowling, etc], outdoor activities [hiking, camping, fishing, etc], obstacle races (just started doing this. awesome))
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What am I gonna eat next?
oh, and life
On a typical Friday night I am
chilling with friends over drinks/food
You should message me if
You're cool and/or witty. If you know how to laugh, and do it often. Sense of humor is super important to me. Wit. Sarcasm. Randomness. Bottom line is if I can't make you laugh, and/or you can't make me laugh, and/or we can't laugh together (at each other, other things, or other people), then there really isn't going to be any kind of fun. Just awkward silences and a "I wish I was somewhere else" contest where everybody loses.
Or if you just want to meet new people. Ain't nothing wrong with making new friends with people without constantly wondering if/when they're gonna hit on you.
