I grew up in California, went to Berkeley, then lived in Nashville for four years before moving to SF. Movement is a huge part of my life - I run (just finished my first marathon in June '13), cycle, and play in tennis and kickball leagues. I never stop dancing. Weekends are usually packed full of whatever shenanigans my friends and I can get ourselves into (ie: wine tasting, Tough Mudders, Tahoe trips, camping, dishing out our own brand of costumed vigilante justice, etc.)
I love to travel. In the last 5 years I've made about 200 visits for work or play to around 90 cities in 24 countries. Most recently I went to Vietnam, Laos and Thailand, and am always planning the next one.
Most of what I have done has been motivated by community and people. I spend a lot of time interacting with people, and like it that way.
Also that I tend to jog from place to place regardless of setting or attire.
I read a lot of self development/inspirational books. Leaving Microsoft to Change the World is a favorite.
I like seeing movies at the Kabuki theater on Post and Fillmore. They serve drinks there.
Live music is the goodness. I try to see at least one show a month. Rock, Indy, Folksy, EDM, Country - it's all good. If I can dance to it, I'm in; gotta love that eargasmic serotonin release. Examples: Cut Copy, Passion Pit, Geographer, Imagine Dragons, M83, St. Lucia, Foster the People, Vampire Weekend, Walk the Moon, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Muse. The White Panda makes amazing mashups.
I eat out a lot just because there is always something new to try somewhere. I will eat anything and like it. Except black licorice. Fuck that stuff.
