Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am currently splitting my time between Oakland and Davis, but I
grew up south of Boston in a small beach town. I was very fortunate
to realize at a young age the power of choice and the importance of
surrounding yourself by good people. I enjoy meeting new people and
learning new things.
I went to college and graduate school in the western part of the
state. I love to ski and snowboard. I normally get about 30 days on
the mountain each year. I started skydiving professionally during
the summers when I was in college and still keep my instructor
ratings current, despite not doing it for work anymore.
My interests are very eclectic. I am just as happy climbing a
mountain as I am sitting and having a good conversation. I think
having new experiences and thinking in new ways are both so
important. I really enjoy writing and am writing a book about
various adventures I've been on and lessons I've learned. I'm not
pretentious enough to think anyone will want to read it; it's
really just a hobby.
My hobbies include:
I believe in working hard and playing hard. I think it is important
to dedicate yourself to what you're doing, but to never take
yourself too seriously.
I can laugh at most things, especially myself. I think it is
important to appreciate what you have, while working for what you
want. Also, the little things matter. Help people whenever you can.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I am very new to the west coast. I transferred here from Boston and
am very excited about all the possibilities!
I landed my dream job! It is a fantastic career with a tremendous
amount if opportunity. I feel very fortunate to have been given
this opportunity to have this career and I feel humbled to be
surrounded by such high quality people. The pay and benefits are
very good but it can require some odd hours and duties. This is
definitely the result of a lifetime of choices. If you can get me
to tell you what it is, you're a winner.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Setting realistic goals and working at them.
Being open minded, but speaking my mind.
Appreciating a good story.
Finding value in each day.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Something to put down my thoughts on.
Surrounding myself by interesting people.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
I think it is very important to appreciate what you have and work
for what you want. It is also very important to help your friends.
Sometimes little things matter a lot.
I have an ever growing list of things that I will do. There is a
lot out there to experience! I have scratched a lot of the list,
but it is much easier to add than accomplish!
Investing. I'm on track to retire at 50 and go adventuring around
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I hear that women enjoy men who are spontaneous and funny; so on a
morning run I jogged up beside a young lady and said "it's ok, I
think we lost them".
1) Only one of us thought that was funny;
2) I really am that bad at flirting.
