I'm a software architect for a billing company outside Philly. We also have offices in SF, so I periodically have to fly out there on business.
I love mexican food (and spicy food in general), and lots of different types of music. I'm a member of the Hive76 hackerspace in Philly, where I play around with a little bit of Arduino programming, 3d printing, and game design.
I usually try to pack really light, preferably a single carry-on. I always bring my laptop (for internets!) and usually bring my tablet, for reading books (easier to bring a half dozen books in one tablet than to actually bring a half dozen books).
