My self-summary
Runner. Outdoor enthusiast. Avid traveler. Brunch believer. Urban explorer. Glass blower. Scientist. Salted caramel devotee. Family focused. Not your average bear
What I’m doing with my life
Currently I'm a C-level executive at a tech company in SF. It's a great gig and I enjoy it immensely. This comes after a stint in Boston for grad school (MIT) where I learned the joys of fall colors, scarves, and Burdick's hot chocolates.
I’m really good at
...flying carry-on. Traveling with just the essentials is the best way to stay nimble and focus on the destination.

I’m also a determined weekend runner. Often you'll find me jetting through Golden Gate Park, exploring Lands End, or crossing the GG Bridge.

When I'm not running, I'm daydreaming about my next international adventure. Past adventures have included hiking the Inca Trail in Peru and kayaking in Thailand. More recently, I enjoyed some quality powder skiing in Niseko during my first visit to Japan -- can't wait to return. Next up, Switzerland, for some hiking in the Alps!

I spend a lot of time thinking about
I spend a lot of time thinking about how I can lead a full life. I've come to the conclusion that it's really not that complicated -- but it does take work. Essentially, it boils down to focusing on three things:

1. A great job: I feel lucky that I have a job I'm excited to wake up to in the morning. I'm a computer scientist by training and get to practice my craft most days of the week. The local startup I work for really values my contribution and provides a kick-ass work environment.

2. Getting out and experiencing the world: there is so much going on in this world -- i want todo it all. Whether it's learning something new or going to some exotic location, life is too short to be a casual observer. In the past I've taken Salsa and glass-blowing lessons. Recently I joined a gym where I'm learning rock climbing and yoga. I also like to travel: recent trips include traveling to Peru, Kauai, Thailand, and Japan. Can't wait for my next adventure!

3. Meaningful relationships: With the right people, anything can be fun. In fact, most of the activities I fill my free time with are just excuses to hang out with the amazing people in my life.
You should message me if
You have a good sense of humor and adventure. You keep drama on the big screen and not in your daily life. You lead an active life. And, most importantly, you're a good communicator and think we might be "on the same page" (and planet!). And, if you don't know what to say, just tell me about your next adventure!
The two of us
