My self-summary
I've been asking myself, "Why not?" lately; I always seem to have more fun when I'm asking that question (incidentally, that's what 'warum nicht' means - thanks to one year of German in high school). Should I go skydiving, even though (actually, because) I'm afraid of heights? Should I take a month off work to do a solo Euro backpacking excursion? Should I [fill-in-the-blank]? The 'why not?' answers typically sound like excuses and hold you back. Fighting those excuses is what I'm about.

Same thing explains my enrollment here at OkCupid.com - why not? Hopefully, I'll meet a bunch of fun, positive people that understand me completely when I say, "Fuck it, let's have an adventure."

Also, pull up my Instagram jeffuken - it'll probably give you a better idea of who I am than any words I could write right now.
What I’m doing with my life
Trying to be better.
I’m really good at
Rock Band - especially the Beatles version. Essentially, I could fill in for Ringo Starr without skipping a beat.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never really put out a survey, but I'd assume it's my positive energy.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Tipping Point - Convinced me that the little things really do matter, Last of the Breed, Atlas Shrugged, The Adjusted American, Freakonomics, SuperFreakonomics, Go Dog Go (I truly love this book. It has maybe the best line in literary history, "It's a Dog Party!" 6-year-old me got pumped up each and every time.), The Story of Ferdinand, Outliers, Moneyball, and Good to Great.

Movies: Forrest Gump - Has anyone done more with so little?

TV: Archer, Modern Family, Party Down, Dexter, Mad Men, Parks & Recreation, Breaking Bad

Food: Something I haven't tried before. Or a burger. I love sampling all the different great restaurants we have here in the city, my favorites would be Zazie, Frances, Osteria Stellina, Pluto's (practically an extension of my kitchen - they must feed me on average 4 times a week), SPQR, Roam Burgers, Spruce (awesome burger), and Aux Delices.

Music: It's a little all over the map - Bob Marley, XX, Ray LaMontagne, Mumford & Sons, Lady Antebellum, Josh Turner, Alan Jackson, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, Eric Clapton, Beatles, Al Green, MGMT, Empire of the Sun, Black Eyed Peas, 2Pac, Jay-Z, Enrique Iglesias, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Them Crooked Vultures, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Bob Dylan.
Six things I could never do without
1. My three brothers and my sister - it's nice to have four built-in best friends.
2. My parents - we hang out all the time.
3. My friends - while unoriginal, having no friends would obviously be negative.
4. San Francisco - I love this city.
5. Basketball - I watch, I play, I coach, I just love this game.
6. Challenges - you need to be pushed to be better.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
I get paid to think about interest rates and currency... so that's what I think about the most, sadly enough.
On a typical Friday night I am
Having a few too many drinks with friends while looking for trouble.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I have a lifelong dream of being a country music star - the only issue is that I have no discernible talent.
You should message me if
you can't find a convincing answer to the following question: why not?
The two of us
