Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
My career is in tech, but "it doesn't define me," and athletics,
singing, theater, and yoga are just some of my passions :) I have
lots of family in the area, I am an uncle many times over thanks to
my three sisters and cousins, but I have no kids of my own.

check out the views, jumping off cliffs into snow-fed lakes. I
believe in the power of adventures. I've been east to Palmyra
(during peaceful times), west to Kashmir, and to many places in
between. Grilled fish at the night market, yum.
I have lived on the east coast, midwest, and west coast. I've
performed on stage. I sing in the shower and am an easy sleeper. I
like haskell, kale, board games, xkcd, and a good burrito from

The Snow Leopard, The Martian, Ann Patchett essays, The Boys in the
The current descendants of prog, e.g., M83, Sirius XMU, I sometimes
work to Steve Reich or Arvo Part, and who doesn't love 80's night?
I'm listening to more jazz in my car, and singing Verdi and
Tchaikovsky in my lessons. Lots of rooms in this house.
I'm somehow always behind on movies and really behind on TV. I've
seen some recent movies with zero foreknowledge, to interesting
effect: Midnight in Paris, I thought, doesn't this guy realize he's
at a costume party? Boyhood, I thought, wow, best casting director
Up for the SF Playhouse, the Marsh, ODC, Berkeley Rep, the
