Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Hi, I'm John! I just graduated from Stanford with a mechanical
engineering degree, and will be finishing up my Master's there by
the end of the year. As for things you should know about me . .
1. I'm a musician. A pretty solid one. I've played the trumpet for
a decade at this point, and love to play in all sorts of different
genres, from jazz to classical to blues to funk to latin to rock. I
can handle both improvised and written music, and can play really
high and loud if I want to, so I'll knock your socks off
figuratively AND literally. So if you ever need a trumpeter for a
gig, want to jam sometime, or just would like to listen, hit me
2. I'm a total techie. And rather handy. Whether it's computers,
cars, electronics, or random hobbies and projects around the house,
if it's something mechanical or technical, I'm all over it. And if
it's broken and can be fixed, I can probably take care of it. It's
the mechanical engineer in me.
3. I'm a huge sports fan as well as an amateur athlete. My teams
are all of the Boston area professional teams as well as the
Stanford teams and of course the US national teams for the Olympics
and fùtbol. I also love to play soccer and work out whenever I can,
though my fitness level is admittedly inversely proportional to my
course load in any given quarter . . . I also love to get outside
and explore new places, either by taking a nice drive or a nice
hike off to a new place. My old Porsche is awesome to drive once
you show it some twisty roads.
Well, I think that just about covers the basics. If you want to
know more, you'll just have to shoot me a message and find out
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Just graduated with my Bachelor's, and now working on a Master's
degree from Stanford. After that, hopefully a (permanent) job in
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Engineering, playing the trumpet and working with computers. Not
too bad at soccer either, as long as I'm in decent shape.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Either that I'm good at the trumpet (if you meet me while I'm
playing), that I'm asian (despite only being half asian), or that
I'm something of the strong, silent type. Until you get to know me
better, that is.

The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Friends and family, at least one of my computers, my wallet, either
my bike or my car, my trumpet, something to keep me engaged (be it
work or entertainment).
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Everything? My schoolwork, future career plans, politics,

Either out with friends, stuck inside working like a grad student,
or stuck inside supposed to be working like a grad student but
actually just procrastinating. As far as the methods of
procrastination are concerned, they range from tinkering with
random stuff to practicing my trumpet to playing all sorts of

I'm surprisingly cuddly. Not many people know that about me, but
it's the truth.
