I also spent a couple of years in Asia, living in Hong Kong but doing significant travel and backpacking to exciting places like Vietnam, Malaysia, India, Indonesia, Singapore, Mainland China, Thailand and a few others.
Oberlin College was my first exposure to the United States and man that was culture shock! I went to school with the most liberal kids in the planet and I loved it. It really had a role in defining who I am now. Lived in Boston after that and then came to NYC for grad school at Columbia. I now work as a banker in the renewable energy sector and I am really excited about what I do which unfortunately often results in my being a bit of a workaholic.
I am highly motivated, intellectually curious and enormously enjoy articulate, witty conversation. By “witty” I really mean laughing so hard tears salt one’s pea and mint soup.
I dislike arrogance, close-mindedness, anyone who wears Crocs that's over the age of 6, people who block the door on the subway, when someone asks me if I am "having fun?" at their party, and the expression "what happens in vegas..." or any derivation used to suit the current situation at hand.
Oh yea, and I'm heavy on the sarcasm. Once you get to know me, I likely won't let an opportunity pass by to make fun of something or someone. So don't wear a silly looking scarf or hat and expect to get away with it in my presence.
