-Love to travel, I've been to London, Japan, and Australia. Recently came back from a Eurotrip starting in Naples and taking trains all the way up to Geneva via Rome and Milan. Have plans for checking out South Korea and Singapore with my old high school friends!
-NPR listener, Morning Edition is a must on the commute to work and I'm starting to get into Planet Money now too.
-Moved from the east coast 10 years ago, so I have east coast sensibility with Cali optimism
-Can cook a mean spicy tofu dish!
What I'm looking for in a great match is someone that can enjoy going out and about in town but just as comfortable staying in watching a great movie or episode of Aaron Sorkin's newest show, The Newsroom. I definitely enjoy a great conversation and it can range from the best movie of all time (High Fidelity, by the way...) to which way to vote on Props. Now, I know politics can be a touchy subject, but it's one that at least my partner will have a real concern for regardless of which way she votes.
I try to live my life by these 5 principles:
1. Keeping an open mind
2. Try to do some good in the world
3. Keep learning new things
4. Say what I mean
5. Don't be afraid of failure
Music: Depeche Mode (pre 2000's), The Smiths, Jean Michel Jarre, Daft Punk, most 80's (who doesn't like that decade?), Florence+The Machine, Pet Shop Boys, Kanye West, Chemical Brothers, Moby, Philip Glass
Books: fiction by Chuck Palaniuck, Bret Easton Ellis, Nick Hornby, Jay McInerney
nonfiction by Robert Reich and Jeff Sachs
2. My road bike
3. Like most people, my smartphone (never get lost with it!)
I have lots of great ideas that at some point in the future I want to flesh out and develop. It's just so much more satisfying when you know your toil and sweat go towards something that is more personal to you.
