Hey, I’m Darin!

Concord, California, United States · Member since April 2012

Metaphorically speaking, I was born to the mountains and forests therein outside of Denver, CO. I grew up there until age 8 when I moved to the East Bay in Northern California. I was very interested in science and technology from a very young age and set out to get a Ph.D. at age 11. I played clarinet in a marching band in high-school, which eventually led me to spend a summer in Taiwan. I went to the University of California in San Diego where I graduated with a BS in EE in 2000. Went to Boston University for graduate school for 2 years, then lived in Orlando followed by Grenoble for 15 months. Studied french and literature and art history there. Came back to finish my Ph.D. at Boston University and then came back to live in SF for several years. Have worked in the gaming, defense and finance industries. I'm very francophile, also very into outdoors pursuits, biking, soccer, tennis, hiking, rafting, fishing, mountains, wild-life, seeing the sites! :) Love to travel, and seeing as I was the student body president for a year at BU, a very cosmopolitan graduate program, I have numerous friends in dozens of countries all over the world! I'm interested in science-fiction and fantasy and love movies and live music. I'm also interested in philosophy, psychology, cosmology, technology and science, the environment... Basically all the big topics in life. I'm also into Buddhism and spirituality and trying to be a decent human being.
