My self-summary
I'm a quirky, closet hopeless romantic that loves music, theatre, art, gaming, the outdoors, and a bunch of other stuff. I'm no pro at romance, dating, or love, but I'm searching for it nonetheless. I'm looking for someone who will belong to me and to whom I can belong. That woman should be passionate, driven, and motivated to be fulfilled because that's what I want for her and me.

I'm in the process of discovering beauty and truth in myself and others; a huge part of that is making healthier lifestyle changes. You should join me on that. I'm getting better at it, but I could use an advocate who's been there.
What I’m doing with my life
I have two Masters of Music, but in my day job I'm a personal banker. The actual job I'm doing isn't as important as the reasons I'm doing it: I believe that whatever I'm doing should bring people together, creating peace and reconciliation. There's enough division in the world to go around; I love the idea of what I'm doing bringing healing to the broken. Here's a clip of me explaining all of this and demonstrating a little prowess at the same time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SRVLElJNLr0

However, the more that I think about it, it would be immensely cool to be a professional game show contestant.
I’m really good at
I love performing music, playing strategy and trivia games, cycling, and cooking. You can always find me at Reading Terminal Market browsing the stalls or out in Clark Park with a book and a cup of coffee in hand. I brew my own espresso at home, and I'll pour you one of those fancy designs in your latte if you'd like. I'm out cycling after most work nights, and I'm up to about twenty miles per night. I'm looking to reform my quizzo team after most of my team graduated and left Philadelphia.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm energetic, earnest, and a bit eccentric. And, oh yeah, I'm Asian and six feet tall. I'm almost always way too silly for my own good. The twinge of geek that flavors my personality cocktail keeps me from getting too serious and introspective

I wear the bow ties. Yep. That guy you know is me. And I tie them myself. I'll teach you if you like.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I cook. A lot. But I do enjoyed being cooked for now and then. I enjoy Italian, pan-Asian, Latin, and Middle Eastern styles the most.

The six things I could never do without
nothing. I'm a pretty simple guy, and there's not much I couldn't go without. But I do love a well-tailored suit and my iPad. I'm realizing more and more though that the most important things in life are not things.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
philosophy, art, music, culture, religions, love. Love is huge.
On a typical Friday night I am
Celebrating the week's work, cooking a meal for friends, seeing a symphony or show, maybe catching a break.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
While I love being around friends, I'm also in my head a lot too. Sometimes I forget to clue people into what's going on up there.

I tell horrible jokes. When I was on the millionaire show, I was told specifically to not tell jokes.
I’m looking for
  • Girls who like guys
  • Ages 24–32
  • Near me
  • For new friends, long-term dating
You should message me if
You're looking for someone who is passionate about helping people realize their dreams. I AM one of those sensitive guys that you see in a romantic comedy: supportive and nurturing while personally content and quietly confident. I would love to have the privilege of getting to know someone like you.

I'm in the process of changing my life my making healthier, more active choices. It would be so remarkable to make a friend/lover who understands how important that is to me and pushes me towards success. Maybe you can share your story of making right choices.

I would love to find more friends with whom to nerd out about art, music, religion, culture, and, naturally, Doctor Who. We should catch a hot chocolate or tea if such is the case. I love hearing people's stories; perhaps you might honor me with yours.

Though I am looking earnestly for a long-term relationship, I do not like to rush into them. Please give us a chance to be friends, to get to know each other, to see what we create together.

And, thanks for reading.
