I have had an interesting life full of ups and downs and have acquired a random set of skills in the process. I'm the only son of two entrepreneurs: a yoga instructor and book publisher. I've traded the futures market, built Tesla Turbines out of basalt fiber, listened to thousands of lectures on topics ranging from human behavior to geology to post-scarcity economics, and I've been to school for mechanical engineering. I love math and science, and see the potential that technology has to dramatically improve life for all. I value my time and have a global perspective. I consider myself a citizen of the Earth who just happens to live in the United States. I don't take anything for granted and I don't suffer fools. I want to have a positive impact on the planet and its many forms of life.
I'm definitely a free love kind of person and I want to spend my time and energy on people that are fun, exciting, intelligent, and whom reciprocate. Think we'd be a good fit? Let's chat!
- Side projects
- Staying in shape with yoga and mixed martial arts
- Getting back into guitar (slowly)
I have consistently heard that I am quite an unassuming fellow. I'm relatively mellow but this mellowness belies intense passion for life.
I love science and nature documentaries. Being an election year, some politics gets thrown in there as well. We've got so many problems pressing our civilization and the planet as a whole, but it's not worth bringing up if you don't talk about potential solutions too!
I love live music, but honestly -- it doesn't need to be so damn loud! I've seen mostly hard rock / metal shows though, so that could be why lol.
Some bands you'll probably hate: Tool, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Pantera, Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Down, Children of Bodom, Korn, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Double Trouble, Pearl Jam, Machine Head, Metallica, Megadeth, Queens of the Stone Age
Some bands no one could hate: Massive Attack, D'Angelo and The Vanguard, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead
I try to eat three balanced and nutritious home cooked meals per day! Saves $ and my health will last longer! I'm not a strict vegetarian or anything but I mostly eat vegetables. I try to limit my dairy and bread but who can turn down pizza?
We could all live better than Bill Gates if we applied our science and technology humanely. However, you must have sustainable values to have a sustainable society. But once we achieve that, we could create a paradise on Earth as fast as the machines could build it.
Hopefully, making people laugh and think.
