Lives of the rich and famous

A Life in the Day: Max Levchin, virtual genius - Times Online

The 33-year-old software supremo who co-founded PayPal and sold it for $1.5 billion

Monday and Wednesday I get up at 5.50 to go training, even though I might not have got to bed until 3am... At weekends I do rides of up to 80 miles north of San Francisco.

....sandwich for lunch.

I have more meetings in the afternoon. The time I finish normally depends on Nellie. She works in the financial-services industry, which is very stressful. We have a modestly regimented marriage. Thursdays, for instance, I’ll be home at 7.30pm and we try to spend quality time together. We might cook a healthy meal and eat it with a glass of wine or just enjoy a few Zen moments together. Sometimes we’ll go to the local ice-cream shop for fat-free frozen yogurt. We might watch a movie, or bond around our dog, a wheaten terrier, taking it for a long walk or a visit.

Other days I’ll be later. Tuesdays I’ll turn up between 8 and 10pm — that’s a mini-date. Monday and Wednesday I carry on until my work is done — it could be 3am.

We’re both vegetarians and obsessively healthy eaters. Given the training, I tend to pound the protein, so breakfast will be some sort of yoghurt or an egg-white omelette with asparagus, which is very popular in California right now. Croissants are an occasional treat for us, perhaps on the weekend.

Croissants are an occasional treat! You are 33, rich as Croesus and you are happy with a pastry as a treat......not a showgirl, bottle of this, line of that and baby oil on tap to be seen... what a waste.


Come on they have "Zen Momments" very rocking roll. but i guess it rocks his boat.
