World traveler currently stuck in Saigon, Vietnam - It's an old story.  Joined Hacker Paradise to work and play abroad starting in Da Nang, Vietnam.  Met a girl.  Married her last year.

Got the BIG passport (50 pages) with the goal of using up every page ... almost completed.

FOOD: Favorite thing to do is find the best / most interesting places to eat that the locals (not tourists) love.  I've discovered some amazing dishes ... and some not so great ones as well.


Grew up in Oakland, California

Fanatical Golden State Warriors Fan and love all things basketball (someone please make another 50 episodes of The Last Dance)

Fanatical Raiders Fan.  Sad for Oakland, happy for the team ... they deserve a first class stadium.

Go Bears!
