My self-summary
I love tacos. And don't give me any of that tex mex crap. They've gotta be top of the line 'mama y papa' style - cilantro, raw onion smothered meat in the delectable double tortilla - authentic Mexican tacos (preferably al pastor). Must have lots of hot sauce (Tapatio or anything your G'ma made) on top.

I just moved back to the bay from Beijing, China, where for two years, I studied Chinese and co-authored a book with a Chinese artist.

The book is finito - published and printed. I am officially a published Chinese author! Newp (any Archer fans?). Published author in China? Yes that's the one!

Like most other impulsive, passion driven twenty-somethings, I have decided to momentarily toss reality and economic concerns aside, and embark on a quest of bold idealism - pursuing my childhood dreams of novel writing (after having obtained a BoS in neuroscience).

Two years of learning have taught me I must practice pragmatism as well as romanticism to ensure forward momentum; therefore, I have begun on the path to medicine whilst continuing my writing.

All that ^ is hella old. I'm an EMT. I'm applying to PA programs. I like working out and running. My previous overflowing naïveté and optimism have matured into a hardened wisdom...naw I'm playing, I still love tacos. Let's get some tacos and a Michelada or two.

What I’m doing with my life
Helping low income people gain access to quality healthcare. Writing and editing novels. Traveling every couple of months. Exercise. Meditation. Reading. Learning. Trying to fill my life with characters.
I’m really good at
talking politics, speaking asian languages in the most exaggerated accent possible, talking international relations, inciting laughter, running, learning

The six things I could never do without
1) The excited look my dog gives me when I tell her we're going to take a walk
2) exercise
3) meditation
4) sudden intense realizations
5) eyebrows (shaved head + no eyebrows? Well that would just look silly)
6) watching those closest to me succeed, and learning from their successes
I spend a lot of time thinking about
How to end my next story
On a typical Friday night I am
Surrounded by positive people, doing positive things.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I used to eat cat food when I was a young lad.

I rap along to Drake and Kanye West in the shower....and I'm really good at it
