Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
One fine day in june while I was on a hike
, I got some gravel and mud in my
sandals. And by "some", I mean half of mount Wai'alei'alei ended up
between my toes. Anyway, I thought to myself while trudging toward
the promise of panoramic views of Hanalei valley, "why am I really
on this hike?" To take a picture? To see more of the beauty that
Kauai has to offer? Or was I looking for something? Something
inside of me?
I doubt my answers would be objective, but nonetheless.. I learned
a valuable life lesson that day. Hike through the jungle in
waterproof hiking boots and wool socks, not teva sandals! Rookie
I am ballsy, optimistic, and smart

Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I have a cool job that challenges me every day. Vacations are just
a distraction, not an escape... they serve to remind me how much I
like what I do, and who I work with.
Having 50% custody of my son is definitely the most important thing
I'm doing. We're learning Shaolin Kenpo Karate
together at United Studios of
, which is rewarding and challenging. I love it.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Getting people fired up. Finding new adventures in unexpected
places. Being vague.

This totally depends on when they meet me. Was I singing at the
time? Telling Jokes? Playing Hockey? Sailing around San Diego bay?
The most common thing I hear when being introduced to people by
friends though is "Oooooohhhh this is THAT guy!". Even bad
publicity is publicity, right?

music: I find something positive in almost every form of music. I
like to sing though, so singable stuff is usually playing in my
food: ornate sushi

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
(I'm going to take some license and say that without these things,
I wouldn't be quite as happy. There is nothing that could make me
decide I can't go on).

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
The human mind. Its truly fascinating. That statement is also
fascinating, as that means the mind is fascinated, by itself.
"Clearly you have a dizzying intellect."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
"Typical" is a no-no for me. I'm generally putting together new
material for the next chapter in the story of my life, which will
be set in 14th century China, which means I will have to replace my
tales of fixing database servers and writing programs with
masterminding ambushes on oppressive governments and using my kung
fu skills to free the people. They're almost exactly the same
