I was born in Kailua, Hawaii. I grew up on the ocean and wanted to be an astronaut. But then I went off to college in the Bay Area and fell in love with running around the mountains and Mechanical Engineering. That's kept me in SF ever since.
I spend the rest of my time outdoors. Currently I'm big into trail running, and just finished a 10 day attempt on the John Muir Trail (we got caught in an August snowstorm on the last day, it's a crazy story). Now I'm training for my first 50 miler this december. I also love skiing, road biking, mountain biking, and climbing. I could use someone to push me to get deeper into climbing, that's a weak spot but I love it.
Grinding out those trail runs, which always end up too long
Finally cooking vegetarian food I really like to eat
Teasing people endearingly, especially myself
Travelling every weekend this summer, apparently
Flip flopping between fiction and non-fiction
Macgrubber, The Big Lebowski, Top Gun
I don't have cable but still managed to plow through Breaking Bad, The Wire, South Park and House of Cards.
LCD Soundsystem, Girl Talk, Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, Neutral Milk Hotel, Mackelmore, Pretty Lights...stuff that gets me to focus or makes me nostagic
Hot Sauce, Avocados, Almond Butter, and just about any plants
Great vegetarian cooking
Long days outdoors traveling light and fast, on and off trail
Travelling the world
Friends that wont grow up
