We exist to help people discover the unexpected joys in their city. It’s remarkably hard to keep track of what’s happening on a daily basis — there’s a lot to do! Events and activities come and go every day, and they require unique, local perspective to properly gather and curate. We don’t pretend to know all the ins and outs of your city, but our local partners do. We are a team of people dedicated to making the local discovery experience better, and in the process help advertisers and publishers along the way.
I was born in Chicago and realized at an early age that vitamin D was in short supply around the Midwest. San Diego bound, I took the road trip of my life with one parental unit and a hamster (long story) only to take up residence under my desk. Sometimes I break out of my office to live the saambaa life. Doing it with friends is usually about getting dirty and meeting the local emergency room staff, or at least taking a shower. You can find me running around the bay, stopping often to catch my breath while being timed by a sundial.
place: the final frontier
vegetable: lamb shank
I’m originally from Connecticut, but I escaped the brutal East Coast winters in favor of sunny San Diego. You can usually find me on (or in) the ocean. If I’m not there, swing by Mexico and join me for a cerveza. I’ll be chilling next to an ocotillo. I’m a fan of gardening, BBQ, camping and relaxing. I avoid phone calls because they are not efficient, so don’t bother calling me, send a text instead.
school: UConn (alumn & fan)
outside: outrigger canoe racing
place: any tropical island
the game guru
I’m a recent graduate of Cal Poly, SLO and a former Co-Chair of PolyCon. I was raised in San Diego and proudly participated in the school band and on the waterpolo, swim, and Botball teams. Now, you can typically find me wandering the beach or playing my music way too loud.

claim to fame: ancient dubstep assassin
personal record: more games than most people know exist
the renaissance man
Imported from the frozen tundra of Minnesota. I now spend my time on the sunny Californian beaches by day and icy hockey rinks by night. In my day to day, nothing excites me more that learning a new trade or improving an existing one. The way I see it, no challenge is too great when you have plenty of coffee. #thelife
drink: American mule
favorite comedian: Joe Rogan
teams: Detroit Red Wings / Minnesota Vikings
If you were just passed by a motorcycle that might have been me. And when not riding on two wheels you can find me riding the Southern California waves on my longboard. I don’t code but I’m a pretty good lifehacker. And no matter what, I’m always in.
when not in CA: Montana
Raised on ski’s in British Columbia and chased the sun to California. I still feel guilty sitting inside on sunny days–but sometimes trade the sun for a So-Cal Hockey Rink. Haven’t found anything I didn’t think I could improve on (except my wife). Always seeking new adventures and love sharing summits, waves, music & good times with friends and family.
favorite axe: Les Paul
place: long, remote river trips
quote: “Look Mom, no hands!”
New York born and East Coast learned, it has been the cold winters that have shaped a certain enthusiasm for learning and building things. Spent much of my youth training for sport and competing in tennis tournaments around the country. I eventually took my talents to college and grew tired of my once beloved sport. After college, a career in Advertising was waiting in New York along with the idea to cut a record, create a band, and enjoy the busiest city I know. I am usually within a block of Bedford Avenue at all times, wait there for a few minutes and I should walk by.
drink: Dirty Martini
I’m a former NCAA collegiate runner so I chase down and catch prospects with lightening speed. I moved out west from New York to spend my first 3 years in San Diego playing with baseball statistics, managing rosters and spending 81 games/year at the ballpark (more than most people do in a lifetime). Geek turned extrovert, always loving the journey and the close.
