Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hey! I'm a Bay Area native who finally made it back. Now I
remember. It's like paradise here.
I'm enjoying local city life: having beers/dinner/concerts with
friends; photography shows; coffee shops; bars; restaurants; family
close by; dawn from a bike atop Hawk Hill; refinishing old
furniture; improv classes; the occasional movie; not having to
commute; getting to know new people; the WTF feeling when someone
smashes your car window overnight. Plus the best part of California
is how easy it is to get to the outdoors from the middle of a city.
I tend to be blunt and irreverent with a sarcastic or at the very
least dry sense of humor. I also tend to be super curious about the
world around us and love engaging with people about that world and
what they think about it.
Also, why are photos of girls with tigers a thing?
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I'm working on making it my own.
Surrounding myself with interesting people; feeling like I'm where
I want to be; working to make the planet better in an industry --
energy -- that I find fascinating; taking the plunge and launching
a startup; redoing my apartment, building LED lights; exploring San
Francisco and California again; being back in real biking shape
after a decade; picking up backcountry skiing. I've done everything
work-wise from medical research to newspaper reporting to the Peace
Corps to working with big corporations and it's nice to settle into
the elements of my life I enjoy.
I love exploring -- often on a bicycle, sometimes on skis,
sometimes with a backpack, occasionally on a motorcycle, sometimes
planned out and sometimes really not planned enough.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Doing things spontaneously; being curious about the world around
us; historical trivia.
The first things people usually notice about me

My goofy smile. Plus they often think I'm incredibly relaxed even
if it's not totally exactly true.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
The people I love (is that a thing?)
Things I can try to build
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
- How I relate to other people and to myself
- The vagaries of work-y things like energy storage
- How we can consume less
- I'll admit that I spend a lot of time thinking about stupid stuff
on the internet
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
out for beers; out for dinner; headed to the mountains; wondering
why I didn't do enough planning and so I'm not doing one of those
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Admit in a public forum? Then it's not going to be very private.
