My self-summary
I'm a dreamer. Not in some sort of abstract, don't-have-a-career kind of way, but in a chase-it-till-you-make it kind of way. I don't believe in wasted time nor wasted opportunity.

I love San Francisco -- the vibe, the people, the culture, the start-up scene, and the food have all made me regret not moving here sooner.

ENFP here, if 4-letter acronyms are your sort of thing.

Made a massive career change from being a marketing/sales dude to an honest-to-goodness software engineer. I like to say it's because I wanted to get the punchlines of more xkcd strips.

I enjoy live music, hitting dive bars, trying new restaurants, gaming (patiently waiting for Overwatch!), traveling, hanging out with my friends and an adventure sprinkled in from time to time.

In a nutshell, life's pretty awesome right now and I'm looking for someone just as awesome to share it with. Totally looking for the Goose to my Maverick. Minus the jet wash, of course.
What I’m doing with my life
- Working at a company down in Mountain View. I love my morning commutes, it's a way of giving myself some mandatory me time.
- Got into stand-up comedy as a creative outlet. One day you're gonna be browsing Netflix thinking "Man, I wonder if that dude on OkCupid is also wondering what documentary to watch tonight"
- Waiting for football season. Bear down!
I’m really good at
- Quoting any of the Fast and Furious movies
- Explaining to people why Tokyo Drift is the best movie in the Fast and Furious franchise
- Talking about my dream The Fast and The Furious/Drive crossover movie (soundtrack is a collab by DJ Khaled and Kavinsky)
- roasting brussels sprouts
The first things people usually notice about me
I want to say it's my rugged good looks and boyish charm but I'm pretty sure it's the fact that my eyes disappear whenever I smile -- like a weird real life emoji.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
What I would do in a dance fight. I live in fear that my moves won't be sick enough for the street.
On a typical Friday night I am
Enjoying the end of another satisfying week with food, friends, and miscellaneous shenanigans. Sometimes it's a board game at a friend's house, or maybe a drink in the Haight, or even a cheesy movie - I've always got something on the go; and I prefer to do it with other people.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Sometimes I forget about Dre.
You should message me if
Self-examination doesn't intimidate you and you can roll with the punches. If you can find pleasure in the simple things, in people, in ideas, in chasing dreams and finding treasures - not only in others, but in yourself.

You're down for cuddling. Holy shit I love to cuddle.
