Story
Tagline
General Partner @SparkLabsGlobal Ventures, Blogger, Political Junkie, TEDster, Foodie
Introduction
Tech Entrepreneur, Blogger, Political Junkie, TEDster, Foodie...

I am selectively driven and passionate, coldly practical, passively social, occasionally chill, comfortably confident, high tolerance for physical and non-physical substances (i.e. alcohol, arrogance, assholes, bad breath), could almost hangout with anyone, easily amused at myself, honest and blunt to a fault.  And I love bacon especially in kimchi jigae, wrapped on scallops, and on pizzas.
