My self-summary
I'm a bay area native. I spent several years living in Santa Cruz, and I love it there, but these days I think I'd rather live in San Francisco.

I'm a pretty spontaneous, laid-back guy. I love live sports (especially the Giants, but I'm devoted to all the bay area teams), live music, hiking, beaches, and basically just putting myself out there and seeing what happens. I also like playing guitar and I also play a wide variety of sports, from disc golf to softball to bowling.

I have a deep appreciation for hot water, good food and drinks, and a freshly salted shuffleboard table.
What I’m doing with my life
I got a BA in Psychology, but was burnt out on academia and looking for something exciting, so I ended up exploring a career in EMS.

Eventually I decided to get my EMT certification, worked as an EMT for awhile, then went to paramedic school and got my medic license.

Unfortunately, medic jobs are few and far between right now thanks to the shitty economy, so I'm currently a lowly office drone while I continue hunting for ambulance jobs.
I’m really good at
Playing guitar (I ain't no Hendrix but I've been playing for several years now), emergency medicine, procrastinating, engaging in intelligent (and not-so-intelligent) conversation, following sports and live music, and being spontaneous and rolling with the punches.

I've recently become addicted to shuffleboard and have gotten pretty decent at that too.
The first things people usually notice about me
My sheer awesomeness. Also, my modesty.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
God, way too many to list but here's a few.

Books: Catch-22, Crime and Punishment, anything by Steinbeck, Orwell or Vonnegut, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Matterhorn. I just read The Kite Runner and thought it was really good.

Movies: The Big Lebowski, A Clockwork Orange, the South Park and Simpsons movies, Requiem for a Dream, Saving Private Ryan, Wes Anderson movies and many, many more. I also like campy horror movies and nature documentaries like Planet Earth.

Music: Way too many musicians to list, but I mainly like blues, bluegrass, jazz, and rock, although really I enjoy any music that is well-played. Some of my current favorites are Carolyn Wonderland, Dumpstaphunk, The Brothers Comatose, and the Infamous Stringdusters. I can even enjoy crappy music in the right context, but you will never catch me listening to stuff like Justin Beiber (I take a lot of precautions to make sure people don't catch me listening to that).

TV Shows: Arrested Development, The Office, Seinfeld, Always Sunny, Curb Your Enthusiasm, The Sopranos, The Wire, Six Feet Under, South Park, 30 Rock, Simpsons, Family Guy, Dexter, Robot Chicken, Deadliest Catch, many others as long as they are in a format that doesn't have commercials.
The six things I could never do without
1) Friends and family

2) Music

3) Excitement

4) Learning

5) Outdoor Activities

6) Spontaneity and occasionally leaving my comfort zone.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Emergency medicine, music, politics, sports, and a lot of other stuff (I sound really deep and profound, don't I?).
On a typical Friday night I am
At a party, at a bar, hanging out with friends, or doing something completely random.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
There's actually some mainstream country music that I kinda like.
You should message me if
You like to laugh, know how to have a good time, and don't stress about bs. Bonus points if you live in San Francisco because I always love a good adventure in the city.
