My self-summary
Welcome to my overbloated and way-too-serious profile!

*****UPDATE Dated December 28******
I have finally reached that turning point in my life and I am proud to say that I'll be leaving LA within a couple months for Berlin to continue my passion. I am keeping my profile for now. I am not looking for a long term relationship.

Straightedge, well-travelled, well-educated, and creative gentleman with a smattering of tortured artist and organic, natural living farmboy thrown in.

Studied at the prestigious University of Southern California, earning a degree in irrelevant, overpriced, academic bullsh** hahaha. Intellectualism can be fun and even sexy, but it won't improve the quality of your life if you can't enjoy the stillness of mind and fullness of heart that comes from watching the dark, tangled silhouettes of barren trees against the pale orange-blue sky of a crisp winter dusk. But, as far as intellectual discussions are concerned, my fave topics include: social behavior, ethics, advertising, cultural trends, patterns, psychology, language+culture, political science, economics, gender studies, anthropology, FOOD, design, subculture, blah blah, it's all good.

I was brought up as a disciple on an Eastern spiritual path. Deepening the spiritual component of life is very important to me. I meditate daily. Will I go to yoga with you? Anytime! I'm neither a bible-thumping judgemental nor a starry-eyed, spineless, tempeh munching pushover. I enjoy finding where different paths share common ground.

I have no shame when it comes to traditionally "girly" activities - crafting, gardening, tea rooms, color combining, food presentation (big time), patterns, fabrics, romance. But am I tougher than you physically and emotionally? Yes. I can draw a line anywhere, any time, for the sake of love. I will dispose of any insect in a 25 yard radius of you. Fuck, I will kill anyone that looks at you funny (that was a joke). I can fix a toilet, install anything, change the oil, run a tractor, have someone arrested, shovel manure, siphon gas, etc. You ain't gotta worry 'bout a thang, darlin' (insert spit sound here).

Annnnnnnd nobody is without their issues. But, I am lucky enough to be aware of them and able to clearly usher my partner through the thickets (cool, right?).
• I grew up with an alcoholic and eventually absent father, so I tend to expect a lot of myself and am still learning how to let others' praise actually sink in and not be disbelieved at the deepest level.
• Even though I can communicate about my emotions skillfully, before such communication takes place I tend to go inward and isolate when I need help or support, not wanting to "inconvenience" anybody. I feel like if I'm not doing things perfectly then I should be ashamed.
• I am an excellent conversationalist - except when in front of an attractive girl for the first time - I get a little self-conscious and kinda jealous of those alcohol-breathy frat boys who just don't give a f^&*. Hahah.
What I’m doing with my life
Every choice and sacrifice in my adult life up to this point has articulated around moving me closer to my goal: professional performing electronic musician. That is my mission and my deepest passion. It have performed live over 50 times and in 4 countries, now.


• Working as project manager for a house construction from the ground up (don't ever attempt this in über-bureaucratic LA, you will end up an anarchist, or worse, a libertarian).
• Composing an album (imagine Daft Punk serenading Trent Reznor, while Prince watches, crying and touching himself. srsly)
• Developing my live show to involve more handmade instruments, and in the future, projected visuals.

The career of a performing artist in a medium such as electronic music is not exactly "fruitful" in Anytown, USA. If I am to be a man responsible to himself and his family, I see it as my duty to put myself in a situation that provides:

1) Financial stability and providence
2) Artistic self-actualization

sufficient to fulfill that responsibility. So, I'll be straight up and say that there IS a chance I'll be moving out of LA to locate myself in a place with a more verdant "scene" - specifically Berlin, Germany.
I’m really good at
listening to friends' problems without giving advice
physical, mimetic humor
handyman stuff
dancing (house, techno, electro, funk)
singing and harmonizing in Japanese
massage (considered studying it a while back, actually)
communicating with children
never using the phrase "I hate ___"
being assertive in a considerate way
making the quiet one at the party feel interesting
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Design, spiritual, cultural studies, technology history, Eckhart Tolle, Yogananda, Emerson, David Deida, Julia Cameron, David Whyte, Marshall McLuhan, Japanese magazines like , Tokyo Graffiti, KERA, FRUiTS and Tune, photography

adventure, documentary (especially history, archaeology, religion, engineering, society, travel, alternative culture, music), quirky comedy, Best in Show, Wet Hot American Summer, TRON (1982), Indiana Jones, classic Bond, Helvetica, Chungking Express, Akira, Fellini Satyricon

British humour (The Office, PEEP SHOW, Mighty Boosh) and currently loving these "breakthrough" type reality shows where people change themselves for the better or declutter their home and emerge anew in an emotional climax, Arrested Development, Parks and Rec, The Wire, TED talks
You can't convince me to watch a show where the hero is a meth chemist. You can try, though, I'm game.

Peter Max, Kandinsky, Mucha, Michael C. Place, Maxfield Parrish, Milton Glaser, Lisa Frank (don't hate, I know you're down with purple metallic zebra-corns)

funky, moody, peaceful, hopeful, rhythmic, exotic, soundtrack, piano solo, polyrhythmic techno, funky house, (a couple all time faves: globe, Perfume, 小室哲哉, カジ・ヒデキ, 中田ヤスタカ, YMO, Alan Tam, Leslie Cheung, Jeff Lorber Fusion, Michael Jackson, 80s Madonna, Smashing Pumpkins, Yes, NIN, DEVO, Beatles, Beach Boys, Derrick May, Squarepusher, Earth Wind & Fire, Chic, anything involving Thomas Bangalter), I do enjoy driving to country music with a great lyric. No gangsta rap, sorry.

Anything Mediterranean (Greek, Turkish, Lebanese, etc). Japanese, Malaysian, dim sum, coconut flavored anything, green tea flavored anything, TJ's Roasted Red Pepper and Eggplant Spread (on sprouted rye toast w/ some olive oil and sea salt), carrot juice, baby spinach, salmon benedict, Indian. No four legged animals of any kind, ever (except maaaaybe in dim sum). Chicken and fish in moderation.

Bonus Round
Oh yeah, if you want to melt my heart, chain me to you forever, and basically own my soul, just let me build us a warm house, fill it with kids, and you can cook us organic, seasonal macrobiotic home cooking in natural dishware and I'll make these for our kids' lunches:
The six things I could never do without
♩ The incredible sense of fullness, peace, and contentment that comes from regular meditation.
♪ Letting punchy, deep electronic beats, funky basslines and sassy chords hijack my body (bedroom, dancefloor, sidewalk...doesn't matter)
♫ The joy of regular escape from my routine--by riding a train; kicking my feet up and feasting on the silent melancholia that saturates the bleak urban railway corridors
♬ Getting lost in the joy of expressive creation in my electronic music studio
♫ Catching the sunrise on my morning walk alone (almost never miss it)
♪ The flicker of golden ginkgo, poplar, or cottonwood leaves against a bright blue autumn sky.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
• how to push the boundaries of live electronic music performance
• the "20-year cycle" of retro style in design, fashion, and music, its fragmentation and probable collapse (what's your opinion on it?)
• the transitional periods between distinctive "decade styles". They are rich, full-flavored, evocative
• How a sound, smell, or even visual texture can unlock a bank of memories
• the relationship between sexual energy and creativity
• music technology
• the "art life", responsibility, duty, balance, freedom vs. security
On a typical Friday night I am
• Stretched out on the ground, watching or reading something hilarious or fascinating, nibbling from a plate of manchego or toscano, dried cranberries, walnuts, red grapes, etc.

• Or dressed up rather fancy, reading or sketching at an outdoor table at my favorite cafe in Little Tokyo ◉ ◉ ◉ green tea donuts!!◉ ◉ ◉

• In the music studio
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 12 we had a jr. high school dance. While I had the wherewithal to ask my crush to dance, I was so inexperienced in talking to girls that while we were dancing all I could do was speak in Beatles lyrics. I no longer have this problem.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 22–32
  • Near me
  • For new friends, short-term dating, casual sex
You should message me if
- you admit that knowing what wherefore means really doesn't matter.
- you're up for a casual coffee/tea or a fancy dinner date with a pretty different guy.
- you feel like messaging someone who will actually respond respectfully no matter what.
- you predict the revival of a font or style so early, that by the time it's ubiquitous you are tired of it.
- you are specifically into house music dancing, projection mapping, live techno, Harajuku style, and technological art
