My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I'm originally from New York, went to university here in Chicago, lived in Asia for a few years and now... (back in) Chicagoland.

Living abroad gave me the opportunity to hike, bike and scuba dive. Being back stateside, I miss hiking, wish I could bike more and I wonder when my next dive trip will be. Til then I stick to swimming and dragon boat paddling.

I'm a nerd with a geek fetish who loves dogs and ice hockey.

I'm not sure where to put this in my profile, but I believe kindness is one of the most attractive qualities in a person. Choose and be kind.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I worked crazy hard to get a degree in Teaching Chinese as a Second Language. It was worth the sweat and tears (real tears...150 page thesis written in Chinese makes you cry). I'm starting a new position this year teaching Mandarin at a middle school.

Personal interests are arty and crafty things like knitting, painting, and sculpture. Two recent projects: custom designed sheep piñata destroyed in mere seconds and stripping/sanding/staining wood furniture for my new place.

I love to cook. I love to cook for friends. I love cooking Chinese, Thai, Turkish and Indian cuisines for friends.

Starting a new video project combining my personal and professional interests of cooking and Chinese language, but with a twist!

Some random things I have on my 'bucket list': be able to do a full cartwheel, go fly fishing, learn to code, watch The House of Commons live (not sure if this possible for non-Britons), and try sky diving...not necessarily in that order :)
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I love having friends over for dinner and I'll cook just about anything for them.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Probably my half Asian Jew-fro, especially in the summer humidity. My smile, I'm told I smile a lot.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

Always on the lookout for new Thai, Mexican and Indian restaurants. I love cooking all those cuisines, too. Actually, I just love to cook.

Most recently I've been enjoying Jerry Seinfeld's new web show, Comedians in Cars getting Coffee. I also love watching comedies in general: Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Flight of the Conchords, Hello, Ladies and Louie to name a few.

Blazing Saddles is my all time favorite comedy film.

Contemplating getting a Netflix account to watch House of Cards (yes...I'm one of those people who have yet to watch it).

I have pretty eclectic taste in music: I listen to Alt Latino songs, movie soundtracks, blues and Afrobeat to name a few.

I'm about to start a David Sedaris book-a-thon. UPDATE: I've read everything, but Me Talk Pretty One Day. I'm told I saved the best for last.

For me, not much tops the 2,000 Year Old Man recordings.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Why does this have to be 'six things'? I love my life and my 'things'...I'm not going to deny them to myself.

That being said, I can't live without garlic, cumin and olive oil in my kitchen.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
My extra toe. Ha, just kidding…
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
I have no typical Friday night, but it's always nicer with a glass of wine in my hand.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I wouldn’t show in public, so why would I put it here? Ask me in person and maybe I’ll share…
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.

you like home cooked meals.

don't take yourself too seriously, but know when you need to.

you give up your seat on a train/bus for the elderly, disabled and pregnant.
