My self-summary
I grew up on the East Coast, in Greenwich, CT, went to the Naval Academy for undergrad, and then spent seven years in the Navy. I left the Navy in 2006 and went to Harvard Business School where I graduated in 2009.
What I’m doing with my life
I feel like adding that I am in the middle of a career transition right now, as I was running my own investment partnership, but I'm just starting a job as a financial advisor with AXA Advisors here in SF.

-- Before my current life, I spent seven years as a Navy officer. From interviews to cocktail parties to dates, the most common questions I get asked are “why did you go in” and "why did you leave?" I served in the Navy because I felt it was the most meaningful and challenging thing I could do at that stage in my life. I believed in all the slogans, “let the journey begin,” “a global force for good,” “don’t read history, make it” and I will always have the satisfaction of knowing that I served. And the Navy delivered on all its promises (you’ll get more details on that if we go on a date).

I also teach a few classes on investment management.
I’m really good at
Listening....while keeping advice to myself (unless it's solicited).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some of my favorite thinkers include Viktor Frankl (on choosing a meaning for one’s life), Stephen Covey (on prioritizing important, but not urgent, matters), and Warren Buffett (on saving and investing).

I like movies about overcoming obstacles (Moneyball, Morning Glory), maturing individuals (Stand By Me, Knocked Up), or that show historical perspective and insight (Munich, Saving Private Ryan, Too Big To Fail).

I find most television incredibly boring with the exception of How I Met Your Mother, The Daily Show, and sometimes Saturday Night Live.
The six things I could never do without
My family - my sister, brother-in-law, and niece live in SF
Public Libraries
Toastmaster's (public speaking club)
Capitalism/The stock market
Economist subscription
I spend a lot of time thinking about to balance my career and personal goals.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've read a few relationship books. My favorites include the classics, "Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus," and "You Just Don't Understand: Women and Men in Conversation."
You should message me if
You'd like to meet up to see if there's chemistry, and see where things go. (And you live in the SF Bay Area.)
