My self-summary
About me:
Hi there! I just moved here from SF back in June and love it! So much to do and explore.

I love all things outdoors and am always down for a weekend hiking, biking, or snowboarding trip. I also like getting out on the town and am vigilantly searching for new bars, dance venues, and karaoke spots (K-town anyone?).

Intellectual stuff:
I'm a voracious reader and love science, philosophy, business, politics, and thoughtful debates.

Random stuff:
-Extrovert but like my alone time
-Love to laugh
-Have lived in San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, Memphis, and Iceland (yep, the small island nation)
What I’m doing with my life
Focused on making a positive impact in the world. It's challenging because I'm doing it through business & technology (vs. more straightforward paths like medicine or teaching) but I'm optimistic I'll pull it off.
I’m really good at
-Making up games to play (ask me about "Ray Charles")

-Coming up with overly detailed, random explanations in response to common questions (i.e. "Why do you think our flight was delayed?")

-Also: dancing, singing, public speaking
The first things people usually notice about me
My friends say that I am "a nice guy who comes across as pretty normal at first.", not sure how to spin that.

I'd also like to think people see me as witty but it depends on your sense of humor (read: if not funny = your fault).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: City of Thieves, Wild, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, Hunger Games, The Fountainhead, Steve Jobs, Eating Animals, Frankenstein, Death of a Salesman.

Movies: Silver Linings Playbook, Limitless, Adaptation, Painted Veil.

Shows: Suits, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Person of Interest.

Music: Steve Aoki, Avicii, lmfao, Santigold, Little Dragon, Johnny Cash.
The six things I could never do without
1. gym access
2. park access
3. my kindle
5. my personal avocado + bagel sandwich recipe
6. friends and family (not in priority order - this one does in fact rank above the bagel sandwich)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What makes people happy, my personal and career goals, whether or not I've forgotten to return any emails.
On a typical Friday night I am
The usual suspects:
A) Karaoke
B) Birthday cocktails for a friend
C) Dancing hip hop or salsa
D) Experience frustration/relief because I forgot to plan something
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When my roommate leaves I like to crank up the music and practice my dance moves.
You should message me if
1) You just inherited a large sum of money with the caveat that you have to spend it in 1 week with the help of a random guy you met on OkCupid

2) You normally date 6' 8" European underwear models but, after a rough breakup, have decided to shoot for a 5' 11" American underwear model instead.

3) You can tell a good joke, have a sense of purpose, and like meeting new people!
