What I’m doing with my life
Here's a random assortment of things I've done in the past two weeks: bicycled to Santa Cruz with a group of friends for a concert and cooked breakfast for everyone the next day, (re)read a Harry Potter book in French, yoga, hosted a picnic in GGP, planned a month long trip to India, visited family in SD, finished reading a couple books and played the guitar almost every day. I also find my job to be fascinating and fulfilling, and feel lucky to work on something I care about.
I’m really good at
I always have a side project... usually with the hubris of trying to improve society (especially through education).
The first things people usually notice about me
My accent is a strange mix of just about everything as a result of long bouts of living abroad, from China to France to Peru and so on.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I subscribe to 35 podcasts plus Audible books (I walk everywhere) and always bring my Kindle.

Authors: Frank Herbert, Brandon Sanderson, Patrick Rothfuss, Seneca, Viktor Frankel, Daniel Kahneman, Dan Ariely, the Heath Brothers, Susan Cain, Adam Grant, and many more...

My favorite TV shows are of the nerdy variety: Dr. Who, BSG, etc... but I like anything with good storytelling and some moral introspection.
The six things I could never do without
I've sold all my worldly possessions more than once in my life... but I couldn't do without the intangibles, like old friends and new experiences.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
If we're actually making the world a better place here in SF with all our technology, or just patting ourselves on the back for apps that solve #firstworldproblems.
On a typical Friday night I am
Seeking inspiration.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Since I come from a family of engineers, I can come across as the hyper-rational type... but the truth is that I spend a lot of time thinking about things like love, empathy and human connection. I'm appreciative of people who keep me in touch with this side of myself, since it can be hard to keep a handle on in a big city.
You should message me if
I'm innately attracted to the kinetic, empathetic and sensual sort who helps me to stop and smell the roses. I can be overly-driven at times, but I have no interest in being a power-couple.
