Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I grew up in the Bay Area, went to school in LA, and then came back
up to the Bay. I occassionally go to China for work.
I'm pretty chill about things; when with people I like to plan out
things but when by myself or with family/close friends I feel fine
just hanging out without a plan for the day. I normally am Myers
Briggs INFP and occassionally flip to the other side. I like being
in groups, but don't necessarily need to say much. But I also like
time by myself.
I like learning new things and getting better at them. I recently
took classes in guitar and sewing :).
My interests are a mix - government/politics, things international,
food, fashion, faith.
For Okcupid, I actually would prefer to be friends first rather
than necessarily deciding right away on whether or not to date. I
find that its easier for me to be forward and honest with people
I've served on some volunteer org, etc. with or done stuff together

startups and tech.
This past year I spent a good amount of time in China for work and
visited a lot of neat cities - Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou,

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
A listening ear,
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I like to be silly. I am also messy.
One of my good friends observed that in couples, values around
money and career often are important areas of compatibility - I've
added in faith as well, so below are my values/views on the
- God is important to me.
- My background comes from a variety of Christian backgrounds - I
grew up in a conservative evangelical church, went to two Christian
high schools, one with a fundamentalist background, the other with
a very diverse background. I was exposed to things of the Holy
Spirit throughout. I hold some beliefs closely although the venn
diagram of my belief seems to be uncommon.
- I am "high/low" - I prefer to spend for value, not always for
"brand"; but if there is something nice that is worth it, I can buy
- E.g. I like buying from Walmart and Daiso Japan, but also will
buy nice shirts
- I like going to hole in the wall places, I feel comfortable in
restaurants in the Mission, SF Chinatown, ethnic strip malls, etc.
But I feel comfortable going to Napa once in a while and trying
