My self-summary
I'm San Francisco born & bred and love it here, but have done the travels and been to enough other places in the world to realize it's not the "end all and be all." I lived in Korea for a few years, traveled extensively, but have somehow kept Europe on the backburner. I like to think of myself as book-smart and street-wise, but also know I've always got more to learn. Emotional intelligence and being good with the words are important to me.

Oh, and I've been a vegetarian all my life. So there's that.

I live and own a business in the Mission. So in all honesty I don't make it out to other neighborhoods as often as I'd like, but always appreciate it when I do. I really appreciate the community and "village life" I've got going now.

I appreciate people that can and do write homonyms correctly, and yet myself sometimes struggle to remember word spellings.
What I’m doing with my life
A few years back I left a career in tech and started my own comic book store and art gallery, which is going great! I'm still learning to let go more and trust, but it's my baby.
I’m really good at
I just got told how well I create a warm and inviting environment, which I hear frequently. So I think I'm pretty good at that :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
People say I'm a "genuinely pleasant person," friendly, nice, etc. and super flattering stuff like that. When I'm my best I think I'm pretty present and authentic with people, and it stands out strangely enough.
Oh yeah, and the whole "eyes" thing.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
All the books! I read a lot, both for work and pleasure, with favorites by Mark Helprin, Michael Chabon, Dave Eggers, Jonathon Lethem. Lately I've been reading Science-Fiction-y stuff thanks to some lent books from some good friends.

I always seem to be a few years out of date on the TV shows. And tend to like the longer serialized shows like The Wire, Lost, Six Feet Under, Breaking Bad, etc.

For music, this week I've been listening to the new Arcade Fire Lorde, M.I.A. and my friend Crashfaster's new album. Old fav's are still Beck, Beastie Boys, Bjork and the Flaming Lips.

Foods! I like 'em. I had some yummy ramen last night, and eat burritos probably too often. I recently discovered a local kimchi that I LOVE so much!
Six things I could never do without
* San Francisco. I can imagine living other places, at least for a short time, but SF will always be home.
* My family, and especially my siblings who are all amazingly awesome.
* Books and reading ;)
* Tacos from my favorite La Taqueria.
* All the fabulous people that I get to see and meet everyday :)
* Spiritual connection, whether it be my Buddhist practice, time on the Playa, or travel of some sorts.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Being a better, more compassionate, loving person, the possibility of a "post-scarcity" society, and my business and continuing to grow it in a challenging dynamic industry that I totally love :)

On a typical Friday night I am
Catching an art opening, throwing an art opening, meeting up with friends, or just keeping it quiet at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I did the netflix streaming thing, and I'm enjoying it way more then I ever would have expected. TV, go figure.
