What I’m doing with my life
Lately, I've found myself back in school for a bit of a direction
change. After working in the banking/financial industry for about 8
years, I decided to stop calculating interest, and start
calculating loads and forces (read engineering). When I don't have
my nose in engineering books, I enjoy taking my motorcycle up and
down Highway 1, and weaving in and out of the Santa Cruz Mtns (at a
reasonable rate of speed, of course).
Aside from that, I enjoy cooking delicious meals, talking sports
and politics with friends, and trying to have a good time with
whatever I find myself doing!!
I’m really good at
As cliche as it may sound, I'm darn good at making people laugh.
The seemingly endless amount of shenanigans my friends and I have
gotten ourselves into over the years have turned into fantastic
Also, I don't mean to brag, but I can be quite handy with a wrench.
I'm proud to say that all of the motorcycles and cars I've helped
my friends fix have never ended up broken again (well, not with the
same problem, anyway)...
Plus, I've been known to be a good friend here and there...

1. Family and good friends
3. A curvy road

On a typical Friday night I am
Instead of saying that "there is no typical Friday night" for me,
I'm gonna say that my Friday nights tend to vary a bit. Generally,
its been hanging out with a few friends, eating some good food, and
just generally having a good time. Other variations of Friday night
might include books, a calculator, and tons of engineering paper
(please note that these nights are the least exciting of the
bunch). A third option would be wrenching on my bike...which when
coupled with the aforementioned beer and friends, is definitely a
good time in the making! :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
The first thing that I'll look at in your profile is education...
If that's not personal enough, to this day, every time I hear
Aerosmith's Dude Looks Like A Lady, I think of Mrs. Doubtfire!
