My self-summary
Moved out to Seattle from upstate NY a couple years ago to start a job. I'm passionate about a lot of things--learning, health/fitness, food, music (playing/listening), technology, and running/basketball/golf to name a few. I'm a great listener and really enjoy having meaningful conversations--both the intellectual and fun kinds. I'm ambitious and goal driven, but appreciate the joy of being lazy too. I'm not your average guy, but I find it pretty hard to explain in words, so you'll just have to chat with me or meet to learn the full story.
What I’m doing with my life
I work at a large tech company, hard at work building cool stuff, constantly learning from others and just enjoying everything life has to offer.
I’m really good at
listening and having a meaningful conversation with anyone about anything
The first things people usually notice about me
my outgoing personality and smile. Apparently when I was a baby it was my big brown eyes, but when you get older, people stop giving you compliments to your face, funny how that works, huh?

Six things I could never do without
1. My curiosity to learn & positive outlook on life
2. The Internet & other fascinating technology
3. Family & Friends
4. Fresh air, exercise and sports (especially golf & basketball)
5. Books, magazines, blogs, and knowledge
6. The power music has on my mood and motivation
I spend a lot of time thinking about
how technology is changing the way we work, play and interact with the world.
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging out with friends or relaxing with a movie or TV show (currently addicted to House of Cards)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Currently addicted to John Mayer. He's an amazing guitarist & I'm just starting to learn to play.
You should message me if
have a good sense of humor, enjoy having good conversations (I've been told I'm easy to talk to), and have a smile that will blow me away :)
The two of us
