My self-summary
I love people. My life is really about experiencing all walks of humanity. Day to day, right now, that means education, travel, friendships, and loved ones. It means a great love of the arts, music, food, and people that are different. Previously it has meant politics and startupworld.

I am looking for a special someone. I will just know when I see you.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm the founder of an early stage music startup. I also teach part time.

I'm a creative intellectual. I read and watch a lot of great stuff. I travel. I'm really getting into music. I'd consider myself more of an astronaut than an astronomer. I want to understand everything and I often think that doing something is the best way to understand it. I have spent most of the last five years in the East Bay, but I have lived in the city and down on the Peninsula previously.

I'm competitive as hell. I play golf tournaments. I think I'll probably win one someday.
I’m really good at
Being there for a friend, calling them out when they deserve it. Not wasting time. Making fun of french people. Also very good at making fun of british people. turning a botched evening into an adventure. Sex in hotels with cool views. drunk dancing. collecting money from stoner friends that owe me because they can't get their shit together to pay their utility bill.

Self analysis.
The first things people usually notice about me
I kinda tend to stand out for a couple of reasons. I can be either completely laid back and quiet, but somehow still have some sort of mysterious edge to me that seems to get noticed. But I can also be a charming force that takes over a room. I care a lot less about pleasing everyone than I did when I was younger, but I can still work a room when I want to. I'm often spontaneous. I'm warm, open, and can get into a natural social rhythm. I guess its just because I'm naturally curious about life.

When I go out now, it's always with some sort of purpose. I'm there to hear music, meet someone, have warm conversation, or just get drunk. Sometimes all of the above.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
mad men, coupling, the wire, monday night football, first take on espn. Stephen A Smith, nytimes,, celebrity gossip, anything history, most anything politics, queen, elton john, most any 80's pop, bee gees, bluegrass, allison strauss, led zepplin, jack white, beastie boys, most anything 90's dr. dre. etc. good dance music off sound cloud, michael jackson, foreign films, erotica, i'm starting to get into electronic music.
Six things I could never do without
A library
Steve Jobs
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Everything I do day to day. Are my relationships what I want them to be? Am I being the person I say I am? I think about music, going places, and humanity in general.
On a typical Friday night I am
Depends. Sometimes I am taking a trip. Sometimes I am out living it up. Sometimes I am tired and want to get up early for a bike ride. I always want to enjoy myself and the company I am with. There is a lot to be said of a great meal, a waterfront, and a someone beautiful sitting across from me and talking about something fascinating.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Any woman I get involved with can ask me whatever she wants. That's what I want.
