Get to know Christian:
Christian is the embodiment of the modern renaissance man. By day, he’s an accomplished sales executive for a leading technology company. By night, he’s either playing drums or singing in his punk rock band, or working on his latest screenplay (which happens to be about dating in San Francisco). He’s a high energy, positive person, who is always looking to experience new adventures.
Why is Christian committed to raising money and awareness for HackCancer charities?
Christian has close family members who have been affected by cancer, so this cause is very personal to him. He’s looking have a positive impact on the world around him, and through getting to know the team at HackCancer, he’s grown to appreciate the organization and our approach to supporting cancer related charities in our Bay Area community.

Christian's "5 Senses" Date Package
Custom Fragrance Design:
You’ll join San Francisco-based perfumer Yosh Han for a sensory exploration in the art of fragrance design. Your private session will include an informative lesson on the history of fragrance and the intricacies of composition and editing. After sniffing aromatic top, middle and base notes and interpreting their meaning, you’ll create a custom fragrance of your own.
Relaxing Spa Excursion:
You’ll head to Archimedes, and the two of you will be treated to two all day bath passes ($120 value), a platza massage (Russian massage technique administered in a steam room and using tree leaves), a mud bath, your choice of a half-hour massage or a body scrub, two woolen felt sauna hats, and a glass of Kvass each, and a Russian Kombucha-like drink. You’ll leave feeling like new people!
5 Senses Dining Experience:
You’ll dine at Opaque, an establishment that serves its patrons in pitch darkness.
Say goodbye to your cell phones and grab onto one another’s shoulders as your server guides you into the dining room. Everything from this point on is something you’ll have to experience to understand, but trust us when we say, it’s an adventure in every sense. In this era of apps, devices, and information overload, dining at Opaque is a unique way to get in touch with what dinner together is really about: mouth-watering scents, stimulating conversation, and delectable cuisine. You will be guided and served by blind or visually impaired individuals that have been specially trained to serve meals in the dark, casually and comfortably offering guidance and reassurance. Your date includes a glass of champagne, an appetizer, entrée, and dessert for each of you.
Arrive in style:
As part of this package, Uber has generously donated a $50 credit for a ride (excluding taxi), so you can arrive in style.
