My ideal day is waking up with the sunrise, watching it from my deck, going out for a long hike bonding with 5-10 people I have met within the last 3 weeks, over waterfalls with healthy snacks and conversation about life, humanity, and all things impossibly big (the universe, business ideas, philosophy) and impossibly small (chemistry, particle physics, ants, a shadow).
I once spent 45 minutes moving out of an apartment, 15 minutes packing a bag with the essentials, and 5 months living out of that bag while getting lost hiking and hitchhiking through different countries, mountains, cities, canyons. It was neat.
I try to fail fast and hard, and aim to live a life without regrets. Many mistakes, many failures, but no regrets. Some of my adventures may end in pain, but it's the cost of doing business. My strategy is to bring others with me and find humor in the failures. :)
College in Philly, worked in NYC and Boston before coming to SF 1.5 years ago to start a hardware/software health tech business. I feel blessed to be able to solve puzzles all day and spend lots of time finding more incredible people who can help solve those puzzles.
I am addicted to meeting people with an "interesting story". I have a very non-traditional story and really get along with folks who have a unique outlook on life. I spend most of my time filling my life with more of these types of people. I recommend it!
Even though I'm born and raised in South Georgia, I have no distinguishable accent.
I'm a nut for Star Wars, but I'll spare you those details.
2. The constant feeling that life is truly special and awesome already and this is just the beginning of it all.
3. Lean meat, veggies, spices, and sauces. All my food is a combination of these.
4. Nature, nature, nature. Particularly panoramic landscape views, preferably >8,000 ft above sea level with no sign of human presence.
6. A versatile jacket because I live in San Francisco :)
Liberating: new ideas, data, sheltered personalities, pivotal knowledge, friends from their bad decisions
And just thinking about what it all means. If I could take a pill and have all of the world's truth and knowledge in my head, I'd do it.
Out of the city: wearing a headlamp sifting through some brush to find a good view of the milky way.
If you know how to laugh at yourself, then we're most of the way there and you should message me :)
