About me

Kraig Parkinson

Strategy Consultant, Buddhist, Nudist, Psychonaut | San Francisco, CA

Tall (6’6″), smart, funny, compassionate, empathetic, well traveled, and intense. Raised mostly by my mom and two sisters, I tend to get along more with women and have more female friends than male friends. I’m also someone who likes 1:1 conversation and engagement over groups, but groups are still fun.

I always do the work to improve myself and live with intention. I expect those around me to do that, too. One of the ways I express this is by geeking out on personal productivity and automation, because I believe we can and should take direct control of our lives with the help of technology, and that we shouldn’t let others control our attention. I also study communication and psychology to understand myself better. I hope you have a way of your own you’re passionate about and willing to share.

 

I may not look like it, but I’m a hippie at heart. I love hot springs and body positivity and clothes freedom. I like spiritual growth and finding diverse ways to connect with the world. I’d like to meet others with shared interests and enthusiasm.

 

I also enjoy a good work-life balance and seek the same in others. I work as a strategy and management consultant in tech, and I’ve been at it for over 20 years. I like the challenge of the work, but I’m considering a move to something where I have more ownership day to day.

 

Lived as an expat for 13 years (India, Australia, Canada, Argentina) and as of August 2017 have been resetting into life in the US, now in SF, which I’ve long considered home after multiple work assignments to the Bay Area in the last 20 years. The experience has shaped me, and I bring that forward into discovering and engaging in the nuances in every new relationship I have.

 

Seeking interdependency over codependency in my platonic and romantic relationships. We should each be happy with the rich lives we lead and not depend on the other for measuring our self worth nor getting validation for ourselves, and we should also get excited about each other and proactively seek each other out.

 

Previously married, divorced, rebounded, and beyond. Been through some solid therapy and learning trying to make sure the mistakes I’m bound to make are new ones and not old ones. It’s a continous process of knowing oneself, so I’m still at it every day.
