Local who made his way back after moving around the country for education and work. I'm loving the sunshine, awesome food/music scene and easy access to SF, Tahoe and the Sierra Nevadas. I'm always hunting down the perfect cup of coffee or glass of wine.
I am a scientist, freelance consultant and entrepreneur. Definitely a polymath. During the week I work on a PhD over at Berkeley (Bioengineering with minor/concentration in business), advise area biotech startups, and am building a small company of my own (more to come soon...).
On the weekends I hunt out live music, the perfect dish or a mountain to climb. I'm an ambivert (introspective extrovert), so a weekend also isn't complete without some family and friend time.
Sometimes my friends refer to me as Encyclopedia Patricka (hint, hint... my name is Patrick).
Games: Cards Against Humanity
Music: Jesse Cooke, Priyo, Marcio Faraco, Classical, EDM, etc.
Reading: Chaucer, Sun Tzu, Machiavelli, NY Times, News of the Weird
I've got a great butt.
One of these two things is true.
It also doesn't hurt if you're smart, driven, witty/playful, warm, inquisitive and can deliver a healthy dose of sass to complement my sarcastic one liners (challenge thrown).
If you love getting outdoors (hiking, skiing, scuba diving, rock climbing, kayaking, camping), exploring new places, trying new foods and coffee/wine... major bonus points.
Don't be shy. I don't bite on the first date.
