A bit of background about me: I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, but came out to the bay area for college and decided to stick around afterwards since (among many other things) that meant I could avoid shoveling snow. I've been really fortunate to travel a bit over the years, including living in London for a year in college and for three months in 2014.
Empathy, humility, and humor matter a lot to me.
Outside of work: I'm working out, going on hikes, volunteering a bit, spending time with friends in the city, reading (which usually means catching up on last week's issue of the New Yorker), taking improv classes, and occasionally squeezing in hip hop dance classes. I'm also trying to practice mindfulness on a regular basis. Oh and I've been giving rock climbing a shot, because that's one of the requirements of living in SF...right?
Movies: Office Space, Shawshank Redemption, Hero, and Inglorious Basterds. I also really enjoy Christopher Nolan's films.
Shows: South Park, Archer, The League, The Wire, Sherlock, Arrested Development, Narcos, and Master of None (although it was sometimes a little too on point...)
Music: Some favorites include A Tribe Called Quest, Air, Andrew Bird, Blind Pilot, Drake, Fleet Foxes, Frank Ocean, Girlyman, Guster, John Legend, Kacey Johansing, Kanye, Kendrick Lamar, Kid Cudi, Kings of Convenience, Koop, Nujabes, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens, Tune-Yards, and Washed Out. I'm always looking to hear something new, and I'm very partial to music with a strong beat.

* Sunny days
* Wit and puns
* Space and time for reflection
Also - I don't have A-list, so dropping me a note instead of starring/liking is a better bet
