Coming to theaters, coffee shops and wine cafes near you - The story of a man of integrity, moderate intelligence (had to check spelling though) and mis-timed irreverent humor navigating SF & its beauty - where parking tickets are plentiful and everyone on OKcupid loves the outdoors, travel and conversations; Mom you lied to me about me being special..
It all started many years ago, in a land thousands of miles away- battling with a decision genie between comfort and growth. Either take a stable job or risk it all for the sake of learning in foreign lands. Young with curiosity, I choose the latter with a couple of hundred dollars in my pocket.
I touch down to learn that the financial promises I was hoping for has been revoked. I'm faced with questions of anxiety, fear and shame should I choose to go back. After 6 beers(well, i was young:)) and still no clarity in sight, the decision genie is back. Nudging myself into new frontiers and build new realities has become the cornerstone of my learning. Unrelated, i vow never to rely on beer for insight. Ask me how this turns out....
Grateful that my life is filled with great experiences and even greater challenges. I develop a thirst to seek adventure & the great outdoors fulfill it. I ski, camp, travel the globe, climb, fall in love, laugh & dance around the world, and create businesses. I find challenging & fulfilling work creating new technology that touches millions of people every day. I feel grateful. Yet, I'm humbled that living in different lands, embracing new cultures, loving someone deeply and learning from life lessons has been the greatest teacher of my life.
A few years pass, a new opportunity and a risk presents itself to move to Europe & Asia. It was that damn genie again. More on this when we meet but my question is, have you taken the risks to find your match?
