Born in Boston, and grew up in beautiful La Jolla. I am a very active, driven, adventurous, and caring person who leads with my heart. I believe that laughter and big smiles are essential, and am passionate about people, exercise, the ocean, nature, travel, great food, music, art, innovation, and good conversation! I am always up for a good hike at lake Sonoma, leisure tennis, racquetball, surfing, diving, or disco bowling. On a quest for meaningful relationships & ineffable experiences, and happily make that a priority over the pursuit of the material.
movies: I like comedy, documentaries, and "reality". Anything provocative & interesting; real life with all its battle & beauty is more captivating/exciting for me than fiction.
shows: I love live music primarily, but shows of all types as long as I am in good company.
tv: Don't own one but watch on demand and at the gym: Suits, House of Lies, The Wire, Entourage, TED Talks, 60 minutes, WCT Surfing, Bachelorette, viral videos (and quite a few more guilty pleasures that I am slightly embarrassed to admit).
music: dotan, ry x, james taylor, norah jones, rolling stones, beatles, notorious big, pheonix, chromeo, circa survive, live jazz, reggae, def leppard, motley crue, guns, steel pulse, the dead, santana, rihanna, katy perry, tycho, nero, passion pit, jet, zeplin, pepper, ub40, andy mckee, minus the bear, saosin, nick drake, the darkness, daft punk, billy idol, shiny toy guns, kooks, metric, naked and famous, m83, the sea and cake, sublime, slighly stupid, the used, skrillex, kaskade, sweedish house mafia, steely dan .... on and on
food: LOVE TO COOK! I APPRECIATE MOST INFLUENCES AND NOTHING SCARES ME IN THE KITCHEN (especially enjoy thai, indian, and indonesian)

I also think about how our human condition, and this our world, are so beautiful, but strangely can't be helped from commingling in an unsustainable way. Why real intimate community and family culture is becoming a thing of the past. How to meet people, create meaningful relationships, and have the most fun despite all the madness out there. How to make wake (vs. taking wake) by staying proactive & productive in an existence becoming more & more reactive (and slave to Apple, Google, Facebook, and smartphone). Appreciating the epicenter of the technological universe here in SF; extreme innovation is/and some of the most amazing, gorgeous stuff ever. How we inhabit multiple truths: we're self-absorbed and collectively aware, fragmented and interdependent, getting wiser and ever-more frightened of truth & real social connection.
