My self-summary
I was born and raised in San Francisco, but I went to college in Washington, D.C. and couldn't stand it so came back to SF. I used to work in finance, but I've transitioned to tech, and now I'm doing my own startup focusing mainly on developing better lossless data compression technology.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working full time on my startup focusing on data compression and cloud architecture. I spend about 12-15 hours a day writing code, but I'm good at scheduling time outside of my work to have non-work related fun and enjoy life.
I’m really good at
- pool/billiards,
- poker,
- writing code,
- investing in the stock market and trading options
- quoting lines from movies I have seen one too many times
The first things people usually notice about me
my height,
my strange mix of esoteric interests,
how I can be what my friends call a "tough read."

An eclectic mix ranging from light rock to the tech programming music I occasionally listen to while working.


Italian, Asian, Indian, and I like the Greek I've had, but ultimately, the healthier the better.
Six things I could never do without
1) my mind
2) my family/friends
3) my ambition
4) modern technology
5) my work ethic
I spend a lot of time thinking about
- How to improve lossless data compression
- What the stock market is doing and how generate income and/or hedge out my positions with options
- Things that can/should be automated
- Encryption technology
- Whether or not to pull the trigger and buy a condo in SF
On a typical Friday night I am
I am most likely either writing code, working out, or checking my stock portfolio. Occasionally, I am at a nice bar, but I am more likely networking than socializing.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love my new condo.
You should message me if
If you're a nice, but candid and transparent person.

If you are ambitious and nerdy, we will probably get along.

Also, if you have an interest in technology, finance, or the startup world, that is a plus.
The two of us
