My self-summary
I'm witty and wise.

I hike, do yoga, bike, and exercise. I'm fit. I never watch television.

I'm comfortable reading anything: business strategy books, a biography of a musician, etc. I love eating Thai food and I like innovative music late at night.

I'm seeking someone with integrity and kind honesty. I strongly value women who have patience and emotional stability.
What I’m doing with my life
Being ruminative, as usual. Contemplating data. Planning my next vacation.
I’m really good at
competitiveness, solving puzzles, being an evil genius and strategy.
The first things people usually notice about me

7. A 7th Thing That You Probably Like Too
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Ambiguities and paradoxes, jazz rhythms, ninja, interactions between different personalities, competitive strategy, psychology and the meaning of the universe.
On a typical Friday night I am
Watching Netflix movies, reading, going downtown to a bookstore, listening to new music, working out with yoga, playing some kind of game, or eating Thai food.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I admit nothing.
You should message me if
You're creative, intelligent, kind, and non-materialistic.
