SF is never never land, no one here ever grows up. Born and raised on a coffee farm in Hawai'i, went out to the east coast for college (Somerville, MA), then put down roots in the bay. Used to work as a 3d animator, loved it but disliked the business side of running a small production shop. Got a sweet tooth for web programming and went to work with friends hacking on environmental and social issues. Who knows what's next?
I love to get outside when I can, snowboarding in the winter and hiking in the summer. Reading, watching good movies, parties and cooking with friends are all at the top of the list. Climbing is also a lot of fun, though I haven't been doing much of that lately. The only game I still play is Super Mario, on my beat up 8bit.
Movies: Huge film buff, but especially love really good animation. Spirited Away and Akira are my two fav's.
Recently seen: Drive (AKA "Ryan Gosling Stares at Things"). Good car chases; should have been directed by John Hughes.
Current Music: the Naked and Famous, m83, Love is All, Beirut, the Magnetic Fields, Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros's, the Magnetic Dipoles (ok I made that up), the Cars and various cheezy 80's, Wolf Parade. I like dancing to electronic music but I don't keep track of it (I still think Underworld is rad, clearly I'm living in the past).
The Pixies were the best.
That's only four.
But not really, right? Most of the time, my thoughts are total crap!
You like to geek out about people and societies and all the little details and how crazy it all is. Possibly over coffee. Spiked with whiskey and sarcasm.
