Moving into Brooklyn after hopping around from New Jersey to
Chicago and back again for a couple of years. My dream is to land a
sweet job where I get to travel the world and do something
important (or badass). I like being my own boss and am an
independent person. But that doesn't mean I avoid the company of
others, as I'm always up for anything.
What I’m doing with my life
launching my career, volunteering, needlessly obsessing with my
favorite Chicago sports teams, exploring what Brooklyn has to offer
I’m really good at
I have a good memory...and I'm not too shabby at trivia. Just ask
my liver how it's handling all the free shots my team wins.
...organizing my music collection. And when I say collection I mean
The first things people usually notice about me
That I kinda look like that other asian guy they once met in a
class they took ten years ago. Then they'll ask if I know him,
since we all seem to be related.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I read a lot, but have this annoying habit of checking out too many
books from the library and not finishing one, or buying too many
books from Barnes and Noble and watch them collect dust.
Movies is tough...can we narrow it down by category?
I'm not caught up on any of these shows...Dexter, Homeland, the
The top plays on my phone this week are: Radiohead, Of Monsters and
Men, and Jay-Z
I can eat anything. I take pride in my iron stomach. But if I had
to make a choice: Middle Eastern food, Japanese, italian
The six things I could never do without
My sense of humor
I spend a lot of time thinking about
...fantasy football. If I spent half of that time thinking about
something productive, I think we'd already have a cure for
...where my next good story will come from. The thing that helps me
get up every morning is anticipating all the random quirky stuff
that can happen to you in a day that's either amazing, inspiring,
or hilarious. Amazo-spira-hilarity.
...my strategy for escaping and thriving in the upcoming zombie
...future vacation spots. I would love to travel more once my
schedule allows. As of now, my top places I would like to visit but
haven't been to yet:
2. Central Africa (Tanzania/Rwanda/Kenya...)
3. Glacier National Park
5. South Africa
10. Austin, TX
On a typical Friday night I am
Exploring some bar/restaurant with a few of my buddies. Then it's
off to either watch live music, comedy show, or watch whatever
sports is on the tube.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
All right ladies...you'll actually get two of these!
When I was very young, I was caught shop lifting a pack of baseball
cards. I never saw my dad so mad!
Don't worry. I have long changed my klepto tendencies since
Bonus private thing:...my mother made me take figure skating
lessons as a kid. One year of pure embarassment and torture. I
begged my dad to get me out of there and start karate!
You should message me if
I'm no Indiana Jones, James Lipton from Inside the Actors Studio,
or Willy Wonka, but if you're looking for a small adventure, good
conversation, or some weird sh*t to happen while touring a candy
factory, you know how to find me...
