My self-summary
In the obstacle course of life, I'm the guy who carefully plans out his path, discards the plan midway through, then makes a new plan which usually involves running through a wall and leaving Looney Tunes style cutouts along the way.

I enjoy a great many things and while I don't mind doing them on my own, I love to share in those things with others, whether it's making the perfect pour-over, playing/screaming over Mario Kart, eating brunch at that hot new place in the city, or dressing up to get steak with a side of neat whiskey at the diviest place in town.

I value ambition, sincerity, and compassion in a person. Someone who lives and lets live, who loves to create more than consume. We're only on this world for a little bit, we might as well try and leave our mark.
What I’m doing with my life
I work in a growing company of 20 or so, developing an AI that will take over the world. Or just help you find the thing you're looking for. I never could keep that straight. I also have a volunteer position with an organization teaching women to code.

My other passion is working on my novel, which takes the bulk of my free time. But I also enjoy over analyzing TV, the occasional wining and fine dining, as well as running up a mountain covered in mud while getting shocked.
I’m really good at
Singing really loudly at karaoke. Drinking neat whiskey. Mix and match to taste.
The first things people usually notice about me
The vest. Everyone loves a good vest. Even if I don't wear them all the time in favor of a hoodie and t-shirt (it gets cold!).
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, Dresden Files, Dune, Lord of the Rings, Sherlock Holmes. I also love Lovecraft despite his racism. I'm currently working my way through American Gods with my inner narrator sounding like a cross between Matthew McConaughey and Batman.

Movies: Pixar movies, particularly Toy Story and Wall-e. Superhero movies, in particular The Dark Knight. Frozen, Lord of the Rings, How to Train your Dragon, Mad Max.

Shows: The Daily Show, Colbert Report, Archer, Arrested Development, Game of Thrones, Agents of Shield, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, True Detective

Music: Girl Talk, Kenny Loggins, Macklemore, Woodkid, Queen, Florence, KT Tunstall, Tape 5, Parov Stelar, Imagine Dragons

Food: Burritos, Sushi, Japanese Curry, Pasta, Steak. Though I'm down for just about anything.
The six things I could never do without
In no particular order:

1. Laptop
2. Autonomy
3. Physical activity
4. Family and friends
5. Dogs and cats
6. Phone (seriously, Google Maps is a lifesaver)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Storytelling and being conscious of its impacts. Diversity in sci-fi/fantasy is particularly important to me.
On a typical Friday night I am
With friends making great big fools of ourselves, whether in the safety of our own houses or in the great wilderness of San Francisco proper.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I once went in against a Sicilian when death was on the line.
You should message me if
You've ever wanted to run a mud covered obstacle course before getting some great meal and melting into a day long coma.

You like to throw dice or play cards.

You like to debate the finer points of TV shows and books.

You'd like to meet my partner in crime, a rather chubby black tabby who acts like a dog to everyone except me (to whom he acts like a cat).
