I'm a man who appreciates all of the joys of life in moments grand and mundane. I'm an improv actor, long-distance runner, believe taking risks is essential to living life fully, follow my curiosity, love to laugh, tell stories, create new things, go on adventures, hiking, camping, sailing, and generally all things outdoors (nature is my temple).
Believing in you and supporting your boldest dreams.
Running uphill. On weekend mornings you'll often find me running up and down the mountains of the Marin Headlands.
In August, I ran the Machu Picchu marathon, rated the world's most difficult marathon. It was an epic experience, climbing 10,000-ft elevation and descending 12,000-ft over a 26-mile course along the edge of steep cliffs in the Andes mountains.
I love setting big hairy audacious goals, and then working my butt off to achieve them.

My ideal relationship is one where we are fully committed to each other's personal growth and evolution; where we encourage and support each other to achieve our biggest, craziest, most audacious goals; where we dream up new visions together of things we then go out and co-create; and where every single day we are inspiring each other to reach a little farther, stand a little taller, confront our challenges a little more courageously, and love a little more freely.
