My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Fun, confident, educated, witty, laid back, in shape, stable, adventurous and happy. In short, I have my act together. I am far from perfect, but I try to improve my life, and relationships with friends and loved ones, every day. Here are a few tidbits about my life so far and personality in no particular order...

- I am from, grew up in and went to college (UW) in the Seattle area. But spent 11 years outside of Washington State, living in other parts of the U.S. (the east coast, southwest, Hawaii...) and internationally.
- I love startup business and entrepreneurship. I have cofounded a startup business myself, ran it for a year and a half, and sold my interest in it. Entrepreneurship is awesome, scary and a fantastic learning experience... like swinging on a trapeze without a net... If your curious, go ahead and ask anything. I love talking about this stuff with people who have an interest in it too:).
- Travelling is a passion of mine. 31 countries and counting. I think traveling and living internationally greatly broadened my horizons and perspective on life.
- I backpacked around South America for five months (6,000 miles, all by bus). Loved it, but the "chicken bus" lost its endearing charm somewhere around mile 70.
- I was the first person in my family to go to college - ever. I am very thankful to the Veterans Administration for both allowing and paying for me to get a law degree, MBA and LLM in tax law. It has allowed me to reinvent myself after leaving the military and opened many amazing doors for me. Forever grateful...
- I totally dig Irish pubs - especially those that have live Irish music. A badass fiddle player is a must... I used to love going to the Owl n' Thistle back in the day to listen to Jack Geary and his house band.
- I think taking public transportation (busses, trains, subways...) can teach us a lot about people and our community.
- I am a rare man that, if lost, I will stop and ask for directions. If I dont know something, I try to find someone who does.
- Politically, I began my adult life as a conservative and have ended up becoming a liberal. This usually happens the other way around...
- I like taking care of myself, working out and eating healthy. I have gotten into juicing and trying to buy organic food.
- I think that time, and having the freedom to spend it as you wish, is the most valuable thing we have. Without owning your own time, and having the freedom to enjoy it, money becomes useless beyond allowing you to just to survive.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I graduated with my JD/MBA from the University of Washington last June. I have worked as a business consultant writing business plans for entrepreneurs, startups and business owners. I love it. I am taking the Washington State bar exam at the end of February. In March I will begin a new job as an M&A advisor (helping people buy and sell medium-sized businesses).
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
- thinking on my feet and knowing what to do in an emergency (blown tire on the freeway, zombie apocalypse...).
- wilderness land navigation. You can drop me in the middle of the mountains with a map and compass and I can easily find something in it or figure a way out of it. (I know, super useful these days)
- reading people...

Help your potential matches find common interests.
All the typical stuff... I wish I was into conspiracy theories or flaming arrow archery so I could differentiate myself on here.

Things I dig:
Hanging out with good friends, meeting new people, hiking, camping, trivia nights at bars, coffee shops, get-togethers, lifting weights, reading, running, movies, happy hours, road trips, browsing through bookstores, listening to audiobooks, walking around Green Lake in Seattle, beach stuff (swimming, surfing, snorkeling, wind surfing...), bonfires, concerts, most ethic food (Thai, Korean BBQ, Italian, Japanese Sushi, Arabic, Mexican, Spanish tapas, Indian...). I enjoy most music and the performing arts.

I think Breaking Bad is arguably the best TV show ever made...

I love a wide variety of movies. Some of my all time favorites are The Big Lebowski, Office Space, Dazed and Confused, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Casablanca, Dogma, and pretty much anything by John Hughes or the Cohen Brothers. Some recent movies that I thought were great are Gravity, Twelve Years a Slave, This is the End...

Current books I have read and thought were awesome are Republic Lost by Lawrence Lessig, Blue Ocean Strategy, The Startup Owners Manual by Steve Blank, and The Great Unwinding by George Packer. Some of my all time favorite authors are Steinbeck, Fitzgerald, Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, Robert Heinlein, Harper Lee, and Hemingway (I love his writing). I also regularly read Paul Krugman's NYT blog... So yes, I am a nerd.
