My self-summary
I'm new to the Bay Area after living a bunch of other places. Most recently New York, but also Massachusetts, Colorado, Chicago. I'm excited to be here, and I like it a lot so far.

My sense of humor can get a little nerdy at times but I connect with all types. My closest friends have always been an eclectic group, which is great except it means it's rare to get them all together at one time.

I run a lot. I'm running my first marathon soon, which I am really excited about. I also love to ski - I got a ski lease in Tahoe for the winter, so I'm super excited about that too.

I guess I'd have to say I'm pretty excited about life in general right now. Feel very lucky to be in the current position I'm in.
What I’m doing with my life
Switching coasts, switching careers. Planning on taking advantage of SF by learning about things like wine and how to surf.
I’m really good at
Folding up a map back to its original configuration. Or at least I was, the last time I actually used a paper map. Not sure when that was.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Startup ideas. Programming languages. Education. City infrastructure. Maps. Neighborhoods. Public transportation. Fitness. Nutrition. Homeless people. Efficiency. Procrastination. Relationships.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I like to listen to energetic music while running, so ... I may have left out some pop stars from my list of favorite musicians up above
You should message me if
If you want to endlessly debate the pros and cons of NY vs SF. If you like to spend time outside in the beautiful CA weather (I don't care what anyone else says, I think it's nice here). If you want to show me the best hole in the wall Vietnamese restaurant you know. If you think we'll have something to talk about.
The two of us
