My self-summary
I'm an aspiring world-travelling writer/racanteur and trivia wunderkind. On my off-time, I'm an engineer at a startup in Mountain View.
What I’m doing with my life
I have a job in Silicon Valley that I enjoy greatly, but I'm also taking every opportunity I can to travel to places I haven't been before to meet interesting people and get out of the tech bubble.
I’m really good at
I'm good at planning out good trips to new cities. This is because I've got pretty decent connections in interesting places, and I have a talent for sniffing out tourist traps. (I also use Kayak a lot)

I'm also on an all-star trivia team at the Rose & Crown, which is essentially Stanford's "Cheers" bar.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love Australian pop music. I don't know what it is, but there are a ton of great bands down there who never crossed over. I am a founding member of the MST3K revival league (I donated to their Kickstarter 😛) since I have a strange masochistic love of *terrible* movies.

I'm currently reading the Bob Spitz biography of the Beatles.
Six things I could never do without
Every morning I line up exactly six even portions of a luna bar, and I eat them in silence whilst contemplating my ambitions for the day.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How I may actually have to move to Sydney in the next four years.
On a typical Friday night I am
Running a Dungeons & Dragons campaign with some friends and coworkers. It's basically improv for nerds.

Otherwise I'm either spending time with my family in Monterey or going to see a movie (did you know theaters sell cocktails now? It's amazing).
You should message me if
You'd like to date a guy who works at a startup, but won't spend three hours bragging to you about it.
