My self-summary
Talk is cheap, I mean all humility aside, I am all of these things & much much more: physically fit, liberal, passionate, articulate, romantic, financially secure, chivalrous, loyal, politically active, good cook and sneaky funny. But I can say just about anything here and how would you know whether I was telling the truth or not? The only way to know for sure is to meet and find out for ourselves. That whole elusive chemistry thing, we've got to be face-to-face before we really know.
What I’m doing with my life
My #1 purpose in life is being the best dad I can be. When I'm not being a dad, I work in Finance/Accounting at UC Berkeley, I'm proud to support an institution that provides high quality public education. I exercise 6-7 days a week and really enjoy physical activity. I’m a strong communicator, respectful of women, a good cook, I enjoy watching baseball (I'm a huge baseball fan), going to movies, concerts (particularly outdoors like at the Greek theater or the Mountain Winery).
I’m really good at
I've been told I'm very good at remaining calm during chaos. Also, working with my hands, gardening, fixing things like cars or projects around the home.
The first things people usually notice about me
I may be a little quiet and not as funny at first, which sometimes people perceive as being intimidating or serious, but actually I'm just shy when I first meet people. I open up and relax once I get to know someone a little better.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: I love to read, Harlan Coben, Daniel Silva, Robert Crais, Greg Iles and Michael Connelly

Movies: Love movies!!! Monty Python, Breakfast Club, Raising Arizona, Hunt for the Wilderpeople, Sing Street, La La Land, Short Term 12, Crash, The Station Agent, Deadpool

TV Shows: The West Wing, Game of Thrones, Ray Donovan, Mozart in the Jungle, Silicon Valley, The Affair, Fargo

Music: Greenday, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Young the Giant, Tears for Fears, The Cure

Food: Total foodie, but doesn't have to be fancy, I love all kinds, from gourmet food trucks (Off the Grid) to dining in the French Quarter in New Orleans (love cajun), or just about any place in Yountville.
The six things I could never do without
Family
My garden
Sunsets
The ocean
Laughter
A good shower to start the day
Cool/clean sheets to end the day
A good book to read
Warm hugs
I know, that's not six, but more is better, right?
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How the F did so many people vote for our new President, hoping as little damage as possible is done during his administration and what can I do to help to minimize that damage. The world my kids are going to inherit (if there still is one) and how I can be a better parent and role model and help to make the world a better place for them.
On a typical Friday night I am
Friday nights are a new adventure for me. Before my daughter left for college, it was often a family night, but now with my son out with his friends new opportunities abound. On Saturday night, I am typically having dinner with friends, watching a movie, sporting event, comedy show, concert or trying something new...
