My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
When I was 8 years old, my cousin, who was 12, imparted to me words of wisdom I live by still to this day: "Be good to others, and others will be good to you... And always wear nice shoes." Strangely insightful coming from a 12-year old. :)

Before we go any further, I have a little confession to make: My name isn't really Prince_Aemon. It's Quy, pronounced Kwee; it means valuable in Vietnamese. Ironically, all of my siblings have Canadian names, and yet I'm the only member of my family born in Canada. Go figure. :)

I'm an optimist by nature; can't help but see the good in people. I suppose that's why I tend to genuinely get along well with the people I meet. My friends say I'm a social Swiss army knife, because I jive well with variety of personalities types: the artsy, the sporty, the greeky, the shy, the outgoing... I'd prefer to think though it's because of my (self-proclaimed) sharp wit.

I have a deep passion for music, both playing and listening. I'm not in a band or anything, but I seldom go a day without noodling around on my guitar. Whenever I'm in a hallway, stairwell, tunnel or any place that echoes, I have to resist the urge to sing like I'm some sort of African American soul singer. :)

I find myself on a plane many times a year; partly for business, mostly for pleasure. I like to explore, meet people, see how we're different, how we're the same. Galloping the globe is a privilege my father would have appreciated greatly when he was my age; these days, he simply enjoys listening to my stories abroad, and sharing them with him is a highlight for me. Moments that stand out in my memory are:

* The White Nights of July in St. Petersburg, on a bridge overlooking the Neva, the sun high in the sky... at midnight.
* A blistering day along the beach in Tel Aviv, facing the Mediterranean, a distinct divide in the sand: to the right, a blur of suntanned skin covered barely by bikinis, to the left: scores of women dressed head to toe in black fabric burka.
* On a suburban block in the outskirts of Havana, a dozen proud and lively locals, around my parents' age, salsa dancing out on the streets at 1am on an ordinary Tuesday; no disco or club within miles; just a quartet of street musicians who appear to have been playing all night long; no sign of stopping any time soon.
* The sobering sight of a defunct torture facility in Phnom Penh; sickening remnants of genocide at the hands of the war criminal Pol Pot and his Khmer Rouge.
* The coast of Morong where my parents' boat of refuge finally met shore after a harrowing journey across the South China Sea from Nha Trang in 1978 -- a journey beset with sickness, starvation, storms, and piracy -- tragedies that dwindled what started as an overcrowded boat at departure to a near ghost vessel upon arrival.
* A look of recognition and pride on my grandmother's face upon seeing me. Without words, her communicating to me a feeling of legacy.

Impactful memories to say the least.

Lastly, I'm currently single, and I'm looking to meet a girl with like interests, and who's a bit of a social Swiss army knife like me. You don't literally need to be Swiss.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I work as a software architect for a large group of financial institutions across Canada. If you've ever paid a bill online, or through an app on your phone, it's likely you've touched one of my systems. It's a typical office job, but I'm surrounded by a great group of people, and I'm passionate about the work I do, because it's hard as hell. On that note, I'm sorry if one of our systems ate your money... It wasn't my fault... I hope. If it was, let me buy you a drink to take the edge off.

While I'm passionate about my career, it only takes up a fraction of my day. That leaves time available for what I ultimately want most in life, and that's to find the right partner, share incredible adventures together, and, when the time is right, be a loving husband and super-hero kind of dad.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Air-drumming. Yeah. When I pretend to hit the cymbal with my imaginary drumstick, I don't simply leave it at that; I also pretend to silence the cymbal afterwards. That's some next-level air-drumming right there. Ba-Dum-Ching...[Silence cymbal]

I'm also a damn good cook. That's a touch more practical than being a next-level air-drummer, but decidedly less exciting.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Off all things, people, women especially, tend to notice my lips. I suppose they're rather full for a man. I'm told I could never be Batman, or any other masked superhero, because my mouth would be a dead giveaway -- a mildly unfortunate career limitation.

Beyond appearances, people quickly notice I have a fun personality and carry a nice balance of confidence and humility.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: A Song of Ice and Fire, Microserfs, A Heartbreaking Work Of Staggering Genius, Kite Runner

Movies: Big Lebowski, Godfather, Say Anything, Casablanca, Fantastic Mr. Fox. I'll give honourable mention to the Ninja Turtles movies on the basis of being, like, totally tubular, dude.

Music: Stevie Wonder, Dave Matthews Band, U2, Jason Mraz. I'm also a sucker for cheesy 80's songs, and I loved the 90's grunge era, so whenever I wear plaid, it's totally legit. Believe that. In terms of more modern music I've been enjoying Bastille, mainly because their sound brings about cheerful memories of the 80's band Tears for Fears :)

Food: I cook at home mostly, but when I'm dining out I appreciate dishes with really fresh ingredients. Japanese and Mediterranean tend to hit the spot for me, but I also enjoy trying different cuisines.

Shows: I don't really watch TV other than the odd re-run of Seinfield, but I look forward to one day watching the HBO shows people rave about like The Wire. Recently however I have taken a liking to the show Suits; I find something endearing about the dynamic between the unlikely master/apprentice pairing. I got a similar feeling from reading the book About A Boy.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Apart from the universal things like family, friends, freedom, food, Scrabble™, and water, here are my six, in no particular order:

- Sashimi
- My guitar
- Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
- Vietnamese subs
- An ocean breeze
- Canada (The more I travel, the more I'm sure of this.)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
After a sunset you will likely catch me staring up into the night sky strewn with shimmering stars, wondering: "Wtf is out there."
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
- Catching up with friends over a few drinks at a lounge or pub.
- Off on a road trip!
- Reading off of my Kindle. This e-reader is my favourite little doodad. It's light, the screen magically resembles paper so it's easy on the eyes, and it seldom needs recharging -- once a week at most. I highly recommend it if you're an avid reader... unless you enjoy doing a bicep curl every time you pick up that copy of War and Peace. :)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I cut my own hair. Double mirror action, alternating hands with the shears and razor. #Ambidextrous
