I live in San Francisco, CA., and I'm Silicon Valley recruiter specializing in Internet and data technologies. My girlfriend works in Human Resources for a research division of the Veteran's Administration of San Francisco. I'm active in sports (mountain biking, skiing, running, hiking), I spend an enormous amount of time reading, and I've traveled to about 40 countries globally. I'm pretty mellow- I like music, art, and festivals like Burning Man and Coachella. I've been hearing how great Austin is for years now and at some point want to come for SXSW.
