My self-summary
I enjoy exploring the wilds of this world, few that they are. Highlights have included mountain biking in New Zealand... motorcycling in Vietnam... and trekking the wind swept ridges of Patagonia. This year I’ve got my sights on Nepal...any tips?
What I’m doing with my life
I lead an Innovation Lab...we help clients understand and implement emerging technologies. Basically, I geek out with new tech. It is a great job. I keep my eye on the prize..financial and geographic independence and a chance to make the world a slightly better place.

Outside of the office, I kiteboard in the summer, snowboard in the winter and maintain a healthy practice of yoga and meditation (good all year round). On Fri/Sat I'm exploring the city. On Sun I'm usually reading a good book (usually science, technology or philosophy. Interestingly, the three are converging). I prefer my vices mind-expanding to mind-numbing.

In the past I've lived in California, Chicago, Budapest and Amsterdam....excited to get to know New York City.
I’m really good at
I cook up a mean Salmon.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Into the Wild, Stumbling on Happiness, Slaughterhouse Five, A Short History of Nearly Everything, Selfish Gene, The Moral Landscape, Guns Germs and Steel, Sex at Dawn, Waking Up, Sapians

Movies: The Beach, Touching the Void, Life Aquatic, Motorcycle Diaries, Pulp Fiction, No Country for Old Men, and many many more

Music: Trip hop, Deep House, Rock, Funk, Downtempo. My most recent concert list was James Blake, The XX, Bonobo, Blockhead, Random Rab, STS9, Blue Sky Black Death, Booka Shade, Rye and Alt-J. That's a pretty representative sample.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Every once in a while when I get out of the city and look up at the sky on a clear night, I can, just for a moment, grasp the profundity of our situation and it blows my little mind. Also, tacos. Tacos are great.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I'm sentimental. Shhh
You should message me if
You’re someone with a healthy mix of adventure, curiosity, and integrity. You understand the importance of collecting moments, not things. And you recognize that life is an awesome gift, made all the better with great compay :)

P.S. If you think this looks like it might be a good time, we'll probably get along.
