My self-summary
This City is rad. It just gets me.

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.
What I’m doing with my life
The work in Nashville was satisfying, but the heavy travel began to wear on me after several years, so I decided to make a change. I moved out to SF, I work in sales for a big IT company. Life is good.

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.
I’m really good at
Picking up new hobbies for 3 months and then moving on to the next, public speaking, remembering people's names, self-deprecation, adapting, doing backflips after drinking, accents (try me)
The first things people usually notice about me
That they get along with me. That they laugh a lot. That I can turn a phrase.

Also that I tend to jog from place to place regardless of setting or attire.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot and use my commute to listen to books on tape. Sci Fi is my guilty pleasure genre (Orson Scott Card, Frank Herbert, Kurt Vonnegut are some favorites). Also love anything by Christopher Moore, Neil Gaiman, or Terry Pratchett.

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.
Six things I could never do without
1. Travel
2. Shenanigans / Tomfoolery
3. Witty and/or bullshit banter
4. Irreverent jokes
5. Sunshine
6. Movement
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How lucky we are.

My to-do-before-I-die list. It's about 75 items long and categorized by time-frame of completion.

How to keep growing and improving intellectually, emotionally, physically and financially. What I'll be doing next weekend. The great stories that came out of last weekend. My next trip. The amazing people in my life.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out somewhere in the City, or in whatever other city I've decided will host me that weekend. Chances are abnormally high that I'll be in a costume...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit is my favorite news source.
You should message me if
You're a fan of adventures. You like to banter. You like live music and like to have a soundtrack accompanying your many adventures. You take care of yourself physically and are active. You know how to be goofy. You like to laugh.
