Steve Stevens tearing it up at the +Billy Idol concert last night in Oakland, right in front of me! His guitar skills are simply amazing. Played a few solos that blew my mind.

They were worried that Lynch couldn't run a yard in 3 downs?!? It's almost too silly to be real. Better check to see if whoever called that play didn't owe money to the mob. ;)

Story
Tagline
Family man, Googler, metal enthusiast, beer and scotch connoisseur, and I like pretty much anything fast and loud
Introduction
Currently work at Google and manage our global contact center operations for most of our services (e.g. wallet, offers, account recovery, etc.)

Previously worked at Hewitt Associates (now Aon Hewitt) in various technical positions, but finished up my time there as a Systems Project Manager building out Health and Group Benefit Systems for Fortune 100 companies.

When not at work, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters, preferably somewhere outdoors in the Bay Area.

For those thinking about adding me to their circles:
  1. I post a lot about Google and Google+
  2. I often share things that are of interest to me (e.g. space and science, metal music, photography, technology and the tech industry, etc)
  3. I look out for people having issues with Google and/or our products and do my best to help them; note: this isn't scaleable given our size, so if I miss you, I am sorry.
  4. And finally, my opinions are my own, not that of Google.  : )
Bragging rights
Started business school with a seven day old and three year old! I finished of course.

Hidden gem in San Jose; surprised it took us so long to find it. Live music, extremely friendly, welcoming and attentive staff, and really great food. Between all of us, we had just about every meat on the menu - brisket, chicken, hot links, pork ribs - all was tender, juicy and delicious. Seriously finger lickin' good! We finished it off with some peanut butter pie, which was a great conclusion to an unexpectedly fun and delicious night out with the kids.

Although the restaurant is a little on the small side, the food was hands down some of the best I've ever had. For starters, we had the calamari salad, which was a mix of calamari, olives, and cucumber in a balsamic dressing. A very healthy portion and a great start to the evening. For dinner, I ordered the filet, which was cooked to perfection, and came with an accompaniment of tomato and mozzarella salad. Combined, it was like heaven. To finish off our evening, we had the banana bread pudding. Another winner. Large portion and perfect amount of banana. Not a single let down the entire night. Highly recommend.
