Last year I went to Hawaii, Australia, and a had an amazing experience at Burning Man (second year). So I guess you can say I've been bit by the adventure bug.
I'm about to go on a 5-month trip to Southeast Asia sometime in March 2013. Nothing is set in stone. All I have is my will, my passport and... well, I still need to get a ticket. I've never been to Asia before, so I'm getting ready for an adventure of a lifetime! Who's up for it?
These two quotes summarize me pretty well:
"The World is my country, all mankind are my brethren, and to do good is my religion."
-– Thomas Paine
"Live as if you were going to die tomorrow; learn as if you were going to live forever"
I'm a little geek, love the outdoors, love performing arts. I'm a software engineer for a clean tech company in the Bay Area, but this is what I do, not who I am. I like to do a little bit of everything.
I'm always reading. I may be reading three books at a particular time. I also write short-stories once in a very while.
I also like languages and to travel. I speak three and I'm learning a 4th right now. Mexico and Nevada desert are my next big trips.
I like to learn new things. I'm currently (trying to) learn Mandarin and to do some juggling (I might try poi next).
Biking to work 4 times a week. Working from home on the 5th day.
Going to as many performing arts events as possible: from comedies, to plays, to dance shows.
Movies: Crash, The Departed, Monsters Inc, Wall-e, Le Fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain, Gattaca, Seven, El Laberinto del Fauno, Olga, Netto perde sua alma, Memento, Donnie Darko, Zeitgeist
