My self-summary
I was born and raised in San Francisco, but I went to college in Washington, D.C. and couldn't stand the culture there so I came back to SF. I used to work in finance, but I've transitioned to tech, and now I'm doing my own startup.

I love San Francisco because of its diverse culture, entrepreneurial spirit, and endless supply of the best views in the world. It's pretty hard to beat and I'm happy to call it my home.

I'm looking for someone I can form a serious relationship with - someone with whom I have an emotional connection, a funny but analytical discussion, and truly grow with as a person.
What I’m doing with my life
I am working full time on my startup focusing on data compression and cloud architecture. This does mean I spend a lot of time writing code, but I'm good at scheduling time outside of my work to have non-work related fun and enjoy life.

I just moved into a condo right in the heart of the city and I absolutely love it.
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) UNIX/Linux
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
- How much my condo will appreciate in the foreseeable future.
On a typical Friday night I am
I am most likely either writing code, working out, or checking my stock portfolio. When I'm not doing one of those things, I'm probably out with friends or at a bar.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Message me and I'll be happy to tell you.
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 big plus.
The two of us
