My self-summary
I grew up on a dude ranch in Arizona, went to a tiny liberal arts school and wound up in New York City. I love the wilderness but I like big cities as well.

My friends think this summary is woefully inadequate and have provided me with the following addition:

As much as it pains us to admit this, he does have a number of good qualities including: loyalty, sweet abs, above-average charisma, inexplicable success (presumably luck), a decent sense of mischief, and a valid driver's license. Basically, he's a highly-skilled, tightly-packed ball of energy that is licensed to operate a motor vehicle.

However, it is incumbent upon us to warn you about a few of Justin's fatal flaws. First, he's fiercely competitive and annoyingly good at lawn games. Second, we're not sure if he fully recovered from the scorpion sting (see below). Also, he's fairly opinionated, stubborn and apparently completely incapable of writing a full OkCupid self-summary.

What I’m doing with my life
Trying to live the best life I can while realizing that life is short and you never know how much time you have left.

So far in that journey I am:
-Attempting to help manage the family guest ranch from afar so my parents can retire.
-Getting involved with and investing in interesting creative, non-profit and entrepreneurial ventures.
-And my day job, researching and investing in technology companies at the hedge fund I've helped build over the past 10 years.

Thrown in with a hearty amount of meandering, traveling, exploring and learning.
I’m really good at
Barely making flights (and occasionally missing them)
Planning spontaneous trips in under 24 hours
Keeping my word
Being earnest
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
East of Eden but really anything Steinbeck, survival stories, Guns, Germs and Steel, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Secret Knowledge of Water, Slaughterhouse Five, The Giver, A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Deliverance, All the King's Men, The Killer Angels, Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay, NPR, Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, Lumineers, Tom Petty, John Denver, Irish rock, Shawshank Redemption, 10 Things I Hate About You, Braveheart, Indiana Jones, 12 Angry Men, Zoolander, Goonies, Anchorman, TED, Game of Thrones, The Office, Parks and Recreation, It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Southeast Asian food, Taim, anything spicy
I spend a lot of time thinking about
-When am I going to have time for this:
-My swimming stroke and how I can get to the point of not gasping for air after 4 laps
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I was stung in the crotch by a scorpion.
You should message me if
-You can teach me something new (a practical skill, language, or even a different way of thinking).
-A long bike ride through Queens in search of delicious food sounds fun to you.
-You're also torn between wanting to do something "great" with your life and just saying screw it to sail around the world.
-You have a dog.
