a brief

history

of me:
originally of massachusetts-extraction, now in silicon valley (by way of stanford, and a large dose of inertia, spent 5 years in mountain view). i moved to "the city" aka san francisco in july 2003, and discovered that inertia sucks -- the city is much better for me.

beverage

of choice, by venue:
beamish (rose & crown),
single malt scottish whiskey (as available),
boddington's (o'reilly's),
bass (the royal oak),
tennent's (the bell tower),
newcastle brown ale (everywhere),
occasional ketel one martini (just getting smashed)


fav

foods:

vindaloo,daal,pork chops with applesauce, crispy chicken tacos,salmon sashimi,spicy shrimp burrito

random

facts:
  • certified member of Red Sox Nation
  • i get up earlier on sundays to watch formula 1 than i would for work
  • electrical engineer (specifically, ASIC design)
  • certifiably INTJ -- Myers-Briggs personality test said so!
  • i drive 80 miles a day roundtrip
  • incomprehensible sense of humor, apparently
  • i love parenthetical asides (like this)

stuff for me to remember to
