My self-summary
Born in China, raised in the Midwest, and a Seattle transplant. I'm a food lover, beer brewer, marathon runner, and NPR/PBS junkie. Looking to find someone to share the great outdoors and enjoy a pint or two after.
What I’m doing with my life
I currently manage a diverse team of people who solves some pretty complicated problems.

My free time is split between trying out new recipes, training for my next race, and checking out all the wonderful restaurants the city has to offer.

Recently, I just started taking a fencing class for fun and it's been a blast! Not only is it a great workout, it's also a sport with participants of all ages...and it's not every day you get your ass handed to you by someone twice your age!
I’m really good at
Other than being a wiz in the kitchen, I've got a strange repository of weird facts. Case in point...you want me on your trivia team.

I'm great at recognizing faces, horrible at names, and I can name your celebrity look alike within minutes of meeting you!
The first things people usually notice about me
That's easy, my height! But as soon as I start talking, my outgoing attitude takes over. Maybe it's the Midwestern friendliness or the fact that I find almost anything interesting but I really enjoy talking to people and engaging their interests. It's surprising to see how people open when talking about the things they're passionate about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books:
lots of Sci-Fi (Asimov, Heinlein, Frank Herbert, Ian Banks, John Scalzi, Dan Simmons), some Fantasy (Patrick Rothfuss, George RR Martin), and pretty much anything that strikes my fancy while browsing the library shelves.

Movies:
Grosse Pointe Blank, High Fidelity, Super Troopers, Office Space, Inception, Dark Knight Returns, Casablanca, Space Balls, Ferris Buellers Day Off, and every 80s action movie ever made!

Music:
Strokes, Black Keys, Peter Bjorn and John, Rhett Miller, Wilco, Rilo Kiley, Sufjan Stevens

Podcasts:
How Did This Get Made, Radio Lab, This American Life, Freakinomics, Fresh Air, Hidden Brain, The Moth

Food:
sushi, dumplings, curry, pad thai, pierogies, anything that's grilled cause really, what man doesn't love the grill?, and pho...cause nothing cures a hangover the morning after like a nice hot bowl of noodle goodness!
The six things I could never do without
Racer 5 IPA
my morning coffee
my running shoes
my library card
NPR/PBS/PRI...I'm a public radio/TV junkie
sriracha...it goes well with anything!
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What to make for dinner. And better yet, what's the perfect beer to go along with it.

Also, how much time I've wasted browsing through my ever growing Netflix queue.
On a typical Friday night I am
-grabbing a few drinks out in town with friends
-hosting some get together at my place
-relaxing with a good book or movie because sometimes, you just want to veg out after a long week
You should message me if
If you're into the outdoors, have a witty/snarky sense of humor, or see something in my profile that sparks your interest.
