My self-summary
I'm a transplant from Michigan, so I'm told I carry the midwest genes of modesty, self deprecation and enjoyment of beer. In all honesty, I try to stay very down to earth and enjoy the fact that I love my job, have great friends and family, and have lead a very fortunate life.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm an engineer by trade: I work with incredibly talented folks building software. I try to keep my work schedule reasonable, but at times I'm called on to pull some late nights.

Outside of work I mainly focus on exploring the bay area. Lately I've been seeking out twisty back roads to explore during weekend road trips.

I enjoy landscape photography: a favorite evening is hiking out for the sunset to capture views of the valley during golden hour.

I'm a runner and beginner at road cycling. I top out at a Half Marathon for running, and 30 miles on a bike. It blows my mind that we get virtually 11 months a year of beautiful weather here in the bay area!
I’m really good at
I love technology. If it has buttons, settings, and specs, it's probably going to fascinate me.

I also really like cooking: I've turned the corner from "oh god oh god it's on fire" to having a pretty decent repertoire of dishes at the ready. I've found that cooking is one of those skills that you can really start to enjoy if you treat it as a hobby. Right now Quinoa and I are getting along really well. That grain is bananas, it goes with *anything* (probably including bananas).

I'm patient. I don't understand people who lay on the horn if they get cut off on the road, or who get pissed when the person a the front of the line forgets something at the store. Everything is cool! Look around, our lives are gonna go on just fine.
The first things people usually notice about me
I love to laugh. The world is a funny, crazy place.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Not a huge TV watcher, but I do love me some Sherlock, It's Always Sunny, and Mythbusters.

Wes Anderson movies are amazing, as of course are The Lord of the Rings. Loved the Star Trek and Tron reboots, looking forward to more entries there. I try to frequent the documentary genre on Netflix, as there's some fascinating stuff available.

I generally have music playing when I'm at home. Pretty varied taste, right now I'm mainly listening to folk music like Of Monsters & Men and The Head & the The Heart. However I also have a catalog of Hip Hop, Rock, & Electronic. Also, total sucker for soundtracks. Try cleaning the house to something like the soundtrack for Casino Royal: dusting never felt so epic.
Six things I could never do without
The Internet

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Getting a dog. It'd be great to have a running buddy!

And of course, the future. Where to live, who to spend time with, where I want my career to go. Pretty common stuff.
On a typical Friday night I am
Ideally winding down with a drink at pub or similar low key establishment. Not a club guy, I prefer conversation over dub step.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was once employed as a professional yo-yoer.

Go back and read that line again.

Yes, it still says the same thing.
