I have my own tall tales now from work and study stints. But what travel really taught me is community. So I'm laying down roots in this crazy city, and looking to explore it with someone new.
I'm drawn to activities that connect me to people I otherwise wouldn't meet, like rugby in London, Airbnb, Alcatraz swim with old guys who don't wear wetsuits (I do), and yoga training at an ashram. I'm helping friends start a shipping-container-house community in West Oakland.
I work out and eat well most days, and always welcome ways to spice up the routine. When I'm somewhere new, I like to scope put all the options nearby. There's nothing I won't try on a dare.
On the weekends, I live for spur-of-the-moment getaways. Stop looking. You won't find another guy who sets up tent with a posh memory foam surface.
Books - I enjoy memoirs & bios because they interweave culture, history, & psychology with storytelling. My library request list includes social science writers like Gladwell & Saposky.
Music - Festivals like HSB, Outside Lands, & Stern Grove are among my favorite things about SF. I dig crazy riffs, intriguing lyrics, or simple melodies.
