My self-summary
I moved to San Francisco four years ago and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire life. Ever since leaving for college, nothing has felt like home until I settled here. After being in Southern California for most of my life, I was finally in a cooler temperature where I could wear hoodies and plaid shirts more often, and get away with wearing beanies on my head whenever I'm too lazy to fix my hair.
Fashion convenience aside, I really am just looking to meet new friends. I'm amazed by how many new experiences this city holds, so having a good partner-in-crime always helps in becoming a bit more daring. As for what I'm drawn to? Witty banter is a lot sexier than six pack abs.
What I’m doing with my life
I'm currently in recruiting for a company based out of Fremont & Palo Alto and I LOVE my job. It's the best combo of interesting work, fantastic management, and the ability to work from home in my pajamas for half of the week.
I’m really good at
First and foremost, I make a kick-ass mixed CD. I also have a knack for playing host. I can organize a mean pot luck at work and have a night of drunken Guitar Hero (back when it was still relevant) and Hamburger Helper with friends later that night. Oh yeah, my job. I'm pretty great at that too. There really is no humble way to answer this question, is there?
The first things people usually notice about me
I guess I've been told that I'm a quirky, caring, unabashed geek that loves pop culture and treats his family like friends and his friends like family. Oh, and I'm a bit too much of a morning person, but not in an annoying way. Well, let's face it, anybody that can smile in the morning is kind of annoying.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Bossy Pants (mostly because of my slight obsession with Tina Fey). Otherwise I'm a huge comic book enthusiast. I could try to hipster it up by calling them graphic novels, but why bother, right?
Movies: In no particular order: About a Boy, 500 Days of Summer, Big, Once, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Kill Bill, Lord of the Rings, Goonies, Scott Pilgrim, District 9, Her, Lion King, Big Fish... I'm sure I could go on.
TV: Six Feet Under, Lost, Battlestar Galactica, I Love Lucy, The Girls (both Golden and Gilmore, as well as the adjectiveless ones on HBO), the Walking Dead, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Game of Thrones, Good Wife, anything Joss Whedon had done, and I'm sure tons more.
Music: Mumford & Sons, Adele, Frightened Rabbit, Freelance Whales, Ingrid Michaelson, Vampire Weekend, Sufjan Stevens, the Killers, Mat Kearney, Greg Laswell, Sara Bareilles, Postal Service (yes, I know it was only one CD), Death Cab, Matt Nathanson, Jill Scott, Rihanna, Justin Timberlake, Coldplay, Maroon 5, Guster, Snow Patrol, Damien Rice, poppy remixes on the dancefloor, guilty pleasures galore, etc.
Food: I'm big on comfort food, Japanese, Mexican, Thai. McDonalds fries, carbs in its many glorious forms and my dad's home cookin'.
Six things I could never do without
1. Friends and Family
2. Comics
3. My DVR
4. Things with a lower-case "i" in front of them (Tunes, Phone and Pad).
5. Laughing
6. White Rice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I'm going to fit all of my crazy life experiences into a proper sitcom or graphic novel... I haven't decided which one is better yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
I will usually have to rotate between a nice night out with good food and good company, out drinking 'n dancing with equally good company, or let's face it, sometimes we all just need a Friday at home where you veg on the couch and fall asleep to a bad reality show.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I sometimes put people's DVDs and Blu Rays in alphabetical order when I visit their homes.
