About me

Brief biography

I grew up in Marin County, CA and have since lived in Palo Alto, Washington DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Senegal, England, New York and New Jersey. Here's a more comprehensive list of where I've spent time.

Hobbies & sports

I'm licensed as private pilot, wilderness EMT, and scuba diver. I've also always been into sports. I've played American football, rugby, soccer, water polo, baseball, and ice hockey competitively. Recently I spend more of my free time guiding kayak trips, climbing or doing triathlons.
