I love living in Oakland. I love to take advantage of everything the bay area has to offer. I love going to all the farmers markets, walking around Lake Merritt, and eating at Vietnamese restaurants in really bad parts of town.
I work in the chemical manufacturing industry. I recently started working at an awesome start-up in Richmond. I finally feel like I'm in a place that's the perfect fit for me.
I play bass in a band that you never heard of. It's not anything super serious but it's a lot of fun.
On the weekend I frequently take my bike into SF and try climbing the steepest hills I can find.
I have a small but reasonably profitable eBay business that I work on from time to time.
