My self-summary
The Bay Area is my fourth home in the last 5 years. Before this, I lived in London, D.C., and NYC. I went to school in New England and grew up in and around Chicago, so I've been around the block once or twice. I think I'll be here a while, unlike the other places I've lived in since college. The people are nicer, the weather is better, and I found a job I really love.

I like going to concerts, exploring the city, reading, lifting, and checking out new bars and restaurants. I'd like to get into rock climbing, but my schedule hasn't left much time for it recently. I stay out late and get up early because there's just too much to do. I used to cycle a lot, but I sold my bike when I left London to save on shipping, but I'm starting to regret it. I rode from New Haven to Seattle one summer, so not having a bike is a bit alien to me.

I love tattoos and piercings though I've only had the latter. I'm tempted by tattoos, but I think my artistic tastes are too fleeting to settle on something.
What I’m doing with my life
Working with startups, trying to build something interesting. I used to work in finance, but decided after 4 years that it just wasn't for me, so now I spend my days messing around with technology and figuring out how to make it better.

Outside of work I travel whenever I can (I visit London about twice a year), hit up art museums (favorite in NYC was either the New Museum or the Whitney; favorite in London was probably Tate Modern), read, and teach myself things (e.g. building a computer, fixing my car, etc.).
I’m really good at
Organizing information. Dragging my ass out of bed. Trying to do too much. Learning things.

Avoiding deer while riding a motorcycle. Keeping said motorcycle on the road after avoiding the aforementioned deer, not so much.
The first things people usually notice about me
My voice is deeper than you'd expect.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I listen to music all the time, but recently I've been listening to the new albums from Iron Chic, J Roddy Walston and the Business, Pusha T, and Blood Orange. More generally, I'm into punk, indie, and electronic music (though obviously not strictly limited to those 3 genres).

I'm always reading something. I try to alternate between fiction and non-fiction. I'm reading "City of Quartz " by Mike Davis right now, which I'll probably follow with "The Idea Factory". (Okay, so that's two non-fiction books in a row. I'm not going to be dogmatic about it.) For nonfiction, my tastes vary: everything from tech/law/culture (e.g. "Remix") to race/politics (e.g. "The New Jim Crow") to econ/psych (e.g. "Thinking, Fast and Slow") to journalism/history (e.g. "And The Band Played On"). Seriously, bookshelves are probably the most prominent furniture in my apartment. Favorite authors: Salinger, Kerouac, Klosterman, Diaz, Wolfe (Tom), Kesey, HST, DFW, and others.

I love Pixar movies, especially Up and Wall-E. I don't know why but I'm not particularly fond of the Toy Story sequels. Other favorite movies: La Haine, American History X, Rebel Without a Cause, Igby Goes Down, Half Nelson, Wristcutters: A Love Story, Brick, The Wrestler, Entre les Murs (aka The Class), Drive, The Lives of Others.

Recently I've been watching a lot of Archer. I love H. Jon Benjamin's characters. But overall I don't spend a lot of time watching TV.

As for food, I'm super excited to be back in the States if only for the peanut butter (although I'll also admit that almond butter is way better). I do like to cook (and bake) whenever I have time. I make some mean turkey (or chicken) chili, and I have a serious weakness for banana bread or pumpkin anything.
The six things I could never do without
- In-ear monitors (think headphone/earplug combination)
- Music (playing (drums), listening to, watching live)
- White t-shirts
- Physical activity (lifting, cycling, running, tennis, whatever)
- Adventure
- Books
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next big project/goal. Currently: learning Ruby.

Aesthetics, memetics, and what makes specific works of art/literature/music/movies "great".

The distinction between gender and sex. Biases. Heterocentrism. Racism. Other isms. Straight white (cis-)male privilege.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out! I like seeing shows or checking out new bars and restaurants with friends. Or, if it's been a tiring week, in reading or watching a movie. It's good to have balance.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I don't really like celebrating my own birthday. I don't know why.
