Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
In the obstacle course of life, I'm the guy who carefully plans out
his path, discards the plan midway through, then makes a new plan
which usually involves running through a wall and leaving Looney
Tunes style cutouts along the way.
I enjoy a great many things and while I don't mind doing them on my
own, I love to share in those things with others, whether it's
making the perfect pour-over, playing/screaming over Mario Kart,
eating brunch at that hot new place in the city, or dressing up to
get steak with a side of neat whiskey at the diviest place in
I value ambition, sincerity, and compassion in a person. Someone
who lives and lets live, who loves to create more than consume.
We're only on this world for a little bit, we might as well try and
leave our mark.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work in a growing company of 60 or so. Our mission as we've
chosen to accept it is to help people make their real lives as
unique, convenient, and interesting as their online lives. My job
function is to be the engineer that the company needs but not the
one it deserves... Or vice versa. I never could keep that straight.
I also have a volunteer position with an organization teaching
women to code.
My biggest hobby at the moment is working on my novel, which takes
the bulk of my free time. But I also enjoy over analyzing TV, the
occasional wining and fine dining, as well as running up a mountain
covered in mud while getting shocked.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Singing really loudly at karaoke. Drinking neat whiskey. Mix and

the time in favor of a hoodie and t-shirt (it gets cold!).

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
In no particular order:
3. Physical activity
4. Family and friends
5. Dogs and cats
6. Phone (seriously, Google Maps is a lifesaver)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Storytelling and being conscious of its impacts. Diversity in
sci-fi/fantasy is particularly important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
With friends making great big fools of ourselves, whether in the
safety of our own houses or in the great wilderness of San
