My self-summary
I never thought I'd spend this long in New York. I moved here in 2004 from Southern California. I thought I'd spend a few years here and end up back on the west coast. It seems like New York's turning out to be my destiny. You just never know how things are going to work out.

I was born and raised in Salt Lake City to immigrant parents (and no I'm not Mormon). Growing up in Utah was... well a little weird. Despite some of the cultural quirkiness, Utah is a beautiful place and an amazing place for recreating. I think that's where my love for adventure started- camping all year long, hiking, biking, etc. As I've gotten older, I do less- my year is now divided into two seasons: scuba diving season and snowboarding season. I've been lucky enough to have traveled around the world to many many countries both for business and pleasure.
What I’m doing with my life
New York has been wonderful for my career and affords me an opportunity to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. I work in the online media/online advertising industry specifically focused on advertising technology. My role is in business development, sales channel development and establishing partnership opportunities between companies. I love my work, the people I work with and I feel like I'm living the dream that I've pursued most of my life.

Food

I'm the least picky eater you'll ever meet. I love to try everything! Eel on a stick- sure. Cows brains, ok, why not. Fried goat's face- yum! Ok I've never had fried goat's face.

With regards to more normal cuisine, I'd say Mexican and Thai are two of my favorites. I enjoy all types of spicy food and in general I think all varieties of Asian food are delicious.
The six things I could never do without
Coffee
iPhone
Snowboard
Guitar
Scuba Reg
Having Fun
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The awesome future I'm creating. I spend more time "just doing it" than just thinking about it though.
On a typical Friday night I am
Out with friends
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
As much as I might complain ceaselessly that in spite of the noise, the 'tude, the hustle and bustle, the smells and all the other things that are annoying and that can be spirit crushing about New York, I really do love it here.
You should message me if
No if's, just do it.
