Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from Atlanta (or "Hotlanta" as folks here like to
say) and moved to SF in February for work.
I've found SF to be great so far - being near the water, all the
great restaurants, and the surrounding Bay Area countryside are all
I won't give away everything just yet. Better to get to know each
other by talking.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I stuck a metal ruler into an outlet when I was a little kid and
got electrocuted. I then went on to study electrical engineering. I
don't do engineering anymore, but I haven't been electrocuted
since, so I guess it was worth it.
I was a management consultant at Bain for 3 years in Atlanta. I
moved on from that in February and am now in charge of Growth at a
startup. It's an odd-sounding Silicon Valley thing, but it
basically means I find things to make the company grow faster and
work on those things.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I'd say that has to be the dimples. People get a kick out of
dimples for some reason. Babies, in particular, giggle and try to
poke my face. Step off, babies.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

My favorite "band" has been Muse for a long time. Lately, I've been
listening to a lot of random SoundCloud stations. There's this one
called "WhitePandaMusic" that is pretty good. I played the
saxophone growing up so I still have a pretty big interest in jazz
and know a bit about it. If you like symphonies or operas, I'm also
going to be pretty excited to take you to those.
GoT, House of Cards, Silicon Valley, True Detective
I'm also a big fan of Louis CK and Aziz Ansari.
Spicy food. Cocktails. I think Adhoc is a really cool concept if
you've ever been there. I'm a sucker for good stories, so if a
restaurant has one, chances are that I like it. I'm the guy who
loves going on the brewery tour even though I've done it 5 times
and know full-well how they make the beer.
I don't read fiction much anymore. Newspapers, business books,
technology books, etc. For what it's worth, my favorite novels are
Speaker for the Dead & 100 Years of Solitude.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
-Funny coworkers - I do have to spend most of my life with them,
-Things that help me unwind at the end of the day (the gym,
Netflix, books, etc.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
-Psychology - I don't have any formal education here but I just
think it's really interesting. I often wonder why people do
-How to drive on market street; still can't figure it out
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either out to dinner or at a friend's house. The occasional
bonfire. Sometimes, if the week was tough, it's nice to stay in and
