My self-summary
I believe "YOLO" should be a battle cry to live a meaningful existence and not an excuse to make terrible life decisions. I believe masculinity, adulthood, and rocking out to Taylor Swift are completely compatible. I believe in exploring new mountains, new neighborhoods, new countries, and new experiences whenever I have the opportunity.

I don't believe in willful ignorance, anti-vaccination, participation awards, intelligent design, or midichlorians.
What I’m doing with my life
Adulting so hard. Transitioning from recovering attorney to tech nerd. Staying active so I can eat like a fat kid. Snowboarding, trail backpacking, and traveling as much as my schedule allows. Watching too much Netflix. Trying to catch up on impulse Kindle purchases. Generally trying to live a life of meaning, intellectual expansion, integrity, and non-douchebaggery.
I’m really good at
Cadence in prose. Pulling off a three-piece suit. Playing with dogs. Traveling with minimal advance planning. Being a body pillow. Unexpectedly tomahawking my snowboard into powder, doing a front flip, and riding away laughing. Rushing the quarterback. Roundhouse kicks. Running interference on creepers.
The first things people usually notice about me

I spend a lot of time thinking about
Staying relevant in an increasingly automated and flattened world. The out-sized importance of privilege and luck in forging a successful life. Finding the best ice cream in San Francisco. Social media making every millennial ever completely unelectable. The balance of physiological and mental factors in interpersonal chemistry.

Re: the ice cream, my favorite is Mitchell's, followed by Shakedown, Bi-Rite, and Mr. and Mrs. Miscellaneous. Props to Ici across the Bay. Gold star to anyone who can impact that list.
On a typical Friday night I am
Shamelessly infringing on Springsteen trademarks and being a boss.

In seriousness, I'm at a friend's place, having a chill drink at a local dive bar, or taking it easy at home with Netflix or a book. Maybe a concert. I'll still go out in the odd hours of the night for a special occasion, but I've broadly transitioned to valuing my Saturday mornings a hell of a lot more than my Friday nights.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Somewhere out in the ether, a flat-bottomed black girl curses the random Asian boy who ended up with her badadonkadonk.
You should message me if
If you suspect I'm awesome, know you're awesome, and want to see if our respective awesomes are compatible.
