My self-summary
I'm a nerd. I run a startup that builds underwater exploration robots. When I'm not roboting, I enjoy going on adventures to mysterious places. Urban exploration, night hikes, people watching, etc are some of my favorite activities. I've also recently gotten into paragliding which is quickly becoming my main weekend activity. I'm most attracted to people who are creative, open-minded, and playful. My favorite conversations usually involve brainstorming about creative projects. If you take yourself very seriously, we may not mesh well.
What I’m doing with my life
I run a 15-person robotics company that is about to launch a new product that we've been working on for the last several years. My work constitutes most of my waking hours, and I love it. Previously, I engineer at NASA working on spacecraft mechanism design, and I was a pilot and engineer for a robotic submarine durring a 3-month long Antarctic expedition. With time off, I enjoy paragliding, exploring the Bay Area via zodiac boat, urban exploration, and building stuff I thought about in the shower.
I’m really good at
Showing excitement, designing hardware, interacting with children, swimming underwater.
The first things people usually notice about me
I tend to smile a lot and be very animated. I seek the same.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I have phases, but generally I like anything that required an elaborate imagination to create.
Six things I could never do without
1. The promise of an unknown future
2. Being able to dictate my own sleep schedule
3. The able to pursue my own ideas
4. Ice cream
5. A good set of tools
6. Places to be explored
I spend a lot of time thinking about
On a typical Friday night I am
In the lab working with my team. I stay up extremely late, so after-midnight adventures are not unheard of. If I'm not doing work, I'm likely to be exploring an unknown place by foot or boat while listening to music.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I can recite the lyrics to most 90's chick rock- Alanis Morissette, Jewel, Natalie Imbruglia, Ace of Base, The Cardigans, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow... you name it... My mind must have been in record mode during that time.
You should message me if
Straight to the point- I just got out of a serious relationship and I'm probably not looking for anything extremely serious right off the bat. I'd like to have fun and date casually for a while. That being said, people I can't connect with emotionally and philosophically are not worth my time. Message me if you think we might hit it off. I'm open minded.
The two of us
