My self-summary
I'm outgoing, social, and highly analytical by nature. I enjoy meeting new people, good conversation, and figuring out how things work. I use exercise (backpacking, bicycling, the gym) as a way to turn my brain off.
What I’m doing with my life
I just moved back to the Bay Area after eight years in Seattle. California (this time around) is my seventh US drivers license. I've moved around quite a bit for work and school over the years. I love international travel and road trips.
I’m really good at
I tend to be highly analytical, trying to figure out why the world works the way it does. This includes politics, urban planning, social policy, or just trying to understand why a specific person acts the way he does. In the Seattle Tesla showroom a few years ago, the sales person told me I should work there, because I already researched and understood how the electric engine and single-gear transmission worked.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Favorite Movies:

The Godfather (not for the violence, but for the character development)
Children of Men
Lives of Others
The Village (love the use of color)
Dangerous Liaisons (notice how the movie starts with Glen Close putting on make up, and it ends with her taking it off?)

Miike Snow, Cut Copy, Portishead, XX, Powderfinger, Interpol
The six things I could never do without
Time completely off the grid backpacking
Good coffee
Conversations with good friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How America would be different if gasoline were priced as it is in Germany.
How religion distorts politics and screws up important decisions.
Why San Francisco doesn't have more new buildings like Portland, Seattle or Vancouver.
How many nieces will see the world when they're my age, and what kind of world we'll leave for them.
On a typical Friday night I am
At the gym, or out with friends for dinner, or at home recovering from the week with a good book. It all depends.
