I think I was serious child, but who can remember. I get far too
attached to sweatshirts of all types, but often hoodies. The back
right pocket of my jeans, where I keep my wallet, is often
I have been told that some of the personal stories I tell involve a
mundane event happening to me, followed by a recounting of the
internal emotional tribulations I endure as a result. I think they
are far more exciting than that.
I wish I had a dog here in California, and not just the one in New
York City that I still refer to as "my dog", but then have to
correct myself and explain that she lives with my parents, and is
not really mine. Her name is Emma, and she is awesome.
What I’m doing with my life
I write software and manage a few other engineers at Apple. I also
eat when I remember to and try to avoid too much downtime on
weekends and holidays.
When I can, I like to ski, and if I had a bit more will power, I
would probably make my way to an indoor rock climbing gym more than
I drove my beloved old Saab into the ground, and now drive a new
much more german car, which I am bit ashamed to own (but it makes
lovely vroomy noises).
I avoid all opportunities for self-deprecation (<- a lie).
I’m really good at
Tinkertoys. Really good.
The first things people usually notice about me
A man at a conference once told me I had "prominent" hair, so

always say, "that guy must love pastrami."

Books: Franny and Zooey, The Little Prince

The six things I could never do without
1) Lists (cliché?)
2) A comfy bed
3) Ampersands (or do I hate them?)
4) My glasses
5) The ability to escape
6) A daily routine to keep me sane
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...all the funny tweets I could tweet if my coworkers and family
members did not follow me on Twitter and I could be as crude as
could be. Sure I could make a new account and tweet them there, but
then no one I knew would read them, and what fun would that be.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working late :( (I swear I can change.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have failed multiple times at learning to eat spicy food.
You should message me if
Occasional beards don't offend you :(.
