My self-summary
I've been in Newport for a few years now. Prior to that I have lived all over the place (Philadelphia, Shanghai, Bay Area-where I grew up, Colorado).

I am not the jealous or envious type (so if that is going to bother you you should probably move on), and I make a point to never complain. I have a good feel for what is bullshit and what is not and I try (sometimes unsuccessfully) not to be impressed by the former. I think most things fall into the BS category but I will be a good sport and play along.

I like this Susan Sontag quote: 'I don’t care about someone being intelligent; any situation between people, when they are really human with each other, produces “intelligence.”'
What I’m doing with my life
I have a careerish type job in Irvine.

Prior to B school I worked for an angel investor in Shanghai where I lived for four years, and I currently work in acquisitions for a Japanese corporate.
I’m really good at
Car dancing. I'm also not a shabby cook.
The first things people usually notice about me
smile. height. Presence.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Some books I have read more than once: 100 years of solitude, Lolita, Sabath's Theater, all Charles Portis and George Saunders and Flannery O'Conner. Just finished Knausgaurd My struggle Book 4. I read a lot, mostly novels, occasionally Sci-fi, occasional non-fiction. I have a twitter addiction that I'm working on.

Some Bands I like:  Tirzah (!!!!!), Future Islands, Phedre, Perfume Genius, Glass Candy, Beach House, Moderat, Most DFA stuff, LCD Soundsystem, Hot Chip, Junior Boys, Class Actress, Aphex Twin, Phoria, Majical Cloudz. I also like dark minimalist techno stuff: Blawan, Karenn, Terrence Fixmer, Rodhad, Planetary Assault Systems, Rrose, Yan Cook, Paula Temple, etc.  I like music. I like going to shows and I like dancing. I also make weird music with synthesizers and drum machines.
You should message me if
Go ahead. I'm picky.
