Human-loving, fast-talking, street-smart, SLAM-dancing.
What I’m doing with my life
I work 9-to-5 as a front end developer for a local branding agency. I throw Nerf darts at co-workers and wear hoodies with Threadless t-shirts to the office.
I was the drummer for cover bands in the local music scene for the last 6 years, but I'm currently taking a break. It's nice being on the other side of the stage in the dance floor and having my weekend schedules open.
I’m really good at
Being silly and attempting to make people laugh.
The first things people usually notice about me
My copious amounts of energy and profound affinity for all things chicken wings.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Neil Gaiman is my favorite author. I saw "The Muppets" 10 times in the theater because of Amy Adams and Bret McKenzie. My TV is tuned to Comedy Central, Sports Center, or whatever Marvel movie is being aired for the millionth time on FX. "Art vs. Science" is one of my favorite international bands. "Fields and Planes" is my favorite local band. I've had Ramen from Tensuke, Edamame, Rishi, Jobu, Meshikou, and Menya - with the latter being the best.
The six things I could never do without
1. Video games
2. Pork belly
5. Board games
6. Canvas shoes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Cheetah cubs. They're cute. And they CHIRP.
I love playing with my friend's cat, Jade. She doesn't meow. She has an adorable squeaky purr that makes her sound like a Tribble from Star Trek.
By the way, in case you've made it this far in my profile and have been wondering: I'm Filipino. I'll fry some Lumpia for you.
On a typical Friday night I am
Eating, drinking, and supporting local businesses. I love Columbus. I love that this town has a thriving food truck culture. I enjoy hanging out at Seventh Son, Four String Brewing, St. James, Little Rock, Ace of Cups, Ravari Room, Hound Dogs, Kobo, Gotcha Gachapon, Ledo's Tavern, Skully's, 16-bit, Little Palace, El Camino, Dirty Frank's, and Sidebar.
On the flipside: I love to stay in and snuggle on the couch. I have a comfy sectional couch in my townhouse. I'm good to have around in the Winter because I generate a lot of heat (read: I have a big belly and should probably lose some weight.)
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
One of the following statements is true about me:
1. I sang a duet with Tori Amos at karaoke.
2. I never learned how to swim.
You should message me if
...You share a common passion for Central Ohio and would like companionship. You should message me RIGHT NOW if you are overly fond of the word "commiserate" and use it frequently.
UBER BONUS POINTS: if you know my "self-summary" reference.
